Theatre Group Firma MES gives all these people a voice, each with its own truth and perspective.

On 24 November 2012, the Surinamese- Hindustani Rishi Chandrikasing was shot dead by a policeman on platform four of the Hollands Spoor station in The Hague. He was seventeen years old and turned out to be unarmed. The writer Kees Roorda was inspired by witness reports and transcripts of police interrogations to write a work in which twenty-six of those involved look back on this dramatic event. Theatre Group Firma MES gives all these people a voice, each with its own truth and perspective.


‘The structure of the text, the tragic source material and the fantastic players make RISHI a fierce and inescapable drama in which there is no room for sensationalism.’
— De Volkskrant newspaper
‘Interesting documentary theatre’
— De Groene Amsterdammer
