English surtitles at a performance of Noem het maar liefde (Call it love)
Maastricht, february 4
A comedy about lust and affection
Anniek Pheifer and Jeroen Spitzenberger star in Noem het maar liefde (Call it Love), a brand-new comedy by critically acclaimed Dutch author, Ilja Leonard Pfeijffer. The play chronicles different encounters set in the famous Majestic Imperial Hotel, in which hundreds of rooms provide space for loneliness. The old rock star and his wild groupie, the successful director and his ambitious secretary, the gay bartender and the single woman, the old couple, the haves and have nots, there is one thing common to them all: they are all yearning for real love.
In an ironic, scathing yet touching way, Pfeijffer shines light on love in the 21st Century – a time in which sex and love are all too easily confused. The scenes are bound together by a live-band, formed by the actors themselves under the musical direction of Viktor Griffioen. Director Michel Sluysmans turns Noem het maar liefde into a hilarious tale of deceit, loneliness, temptation, longing and intimacy.
