We zijn hier voor Robbie (We Are Here For Robbie) is a recognisable family story full of sharp humor and emotional confrontation. In the newly renovated parental home, a family from The Hague comes together to commemorate Robbie. However, the loaded family dinner ends in a fiasco. The caterer is failing, the parquet lacquer has not hardened and the stucco is still wet. New loves are suggested, but old divorce troubles are still clearly palpable. A painful demasqué unfolds before a new guest at the table. And to make matters worse, the elegantly set table also collapses. On the kitchen floor, among the shards, the characters evaluate their lives.
