Whether you are happily single or madly in love, Valentine’s Day might be a nice opportunity to go out and have fun. What’s on in Delft?
When love is over…
Writer and philosopher, Jan Drost, takes you through all the stages of his heartbreak, and tries to interpret them with the help of philosophy, music, films and literature. Why does heartbreak hurt so much? Why is it so difficult to continue? Drost drags you through it as a comforting friend.

You’re the top
Cole Porter (1891-1964) was one of the greatest American songwriters, known for world-famous songs like ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ and ‘Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye’. He combined his extraordinary talent with a very striking lifestyle, but also led a double life. The more successful he became, the lonelier he felt. This play (in Dutch) paints a picture of Porter's life and music.
- Theater de Veste, February 14th, 20:00. Tickets €35.
