Simone Kleinsma dared first few weeks after death of spouse not the door
Simone Kleinsma dared after the unexpected death of her husband, Guus Verstraete, a long time not in the street. “Because I didn’t want anyone me pityingly would look at.”
In march died the director at the age of 69, shortly after he hospitalized with heart problems.
“I moved me as a skittish bird by the district. Wrongly, as it turned out,” says Kleinsma in her first interview with newspaper het Parool since his sudden death. People reacted very friendly “and understood that I need space”. “If they give me claims, it remained in a few words. Or a pinched in my arm,” she says.
Kleinsma and Verstraete were almost thirty years of marriage. “Our life was a duet. Now it is a solo.” Although they have a lot of trouble with picking up her life, she is thankful for her friends who to her by the first months have helped. “They are still in the neighborhood.”
The actress is from september again in the theater with the show Was Signed, Annie M. G. Schmidt, in which she is the well-known writer plays. She is not afraid that her mourning this work is in the way.
“I have over the years learned to problems or pain aside. Because the show always goes on. That, I must now in the superlative.”
