Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The in-for-treatment protagonist is middle-aged Helmert Woudenberg. Expecting a routine examination, Woudenberg is informed that he has inoperable cancer. He also learns that this news is meaningful only to him: the red-tape-bound Dutch hospital system couldn't care less about Woudenberg's anguish. Codirector Marja Kok appears on-camera in a showy supporting role. In for Treatment is a deliberately biased product from the Netherlands' Werkteater theatrical co-op.
