THE MANY-VOICED MAN
THE COMPLETE WORKS FOR THEATRE 2007-2020

Since 2007, Ilja Leonard Pfeijffer has delivered a stage text almost every year. This has resulted in full-length work such as Malpensa, Blueprint for an Even Better Life, The Lawyer, Behind the House and recently Just Call It Love, but also eight smaller pieces. They are all steeped in the theme of love and always written on the skin of time. The politics of Berlusconi, the grave capitalism, the deconstruction of a hot-shot lawyer: it is all addressed in a sparkling collection that the author himself describes as “the annals of those who unlike we admit that they play a role”. The Many-Voiced Man contains all the stage texts including the last one, The Prosecutrix.

Excerpt:

"Shakespearean" – De Volkskrant

"In his collected stage work, he is a writer on the skin of time. Pfeijffer combines sharp, sensitive powers of observation about what's going on in society, with stylistic brilliance. [...] Lavish, voluptuous, vibrant language is a constant in his oeuvre. What stands out in the stage texts is his sense of dramatic timing and sharp dialogues. Pfeijffer shows in this collection that stage texts do not only exist by grace of the performance, but that they can stand very well on their own two feet." Tzum
