Following an Olivier Award-winning run at Trafalgar Studios in 2016, and an Off-Broadway Season in New York, Jon Brittain’s transgender drama Rotterdam comes to The Arts Theatre this Spring.
Alice wants to come out as a lesbian. Her girlfriend Fiona wants to start living as a man. It’s New Year in Rotterdam, and Alice has finally plucked up the courage to email her parents and tell them she’s gay.
But before she can hit send, Fiona reveals that he has always identified as male and now wants to start living as a man named Adrian. Now, as Adrian confronts the reality of his transition, Alice faces a question she never thought she’d ask… does this mean she’s straight?
Rotterdam is a bittersweet comedy about gender, sexuality and being a long way from home which won the Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre award at the 2017 Olivier Awards with Mastercard ceremony. It is penned by acclaimed writer Jon Brittain, co-creator of Margaret Thatcher Queen Of Soho, and writer of What Would Spock Do? and A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad).
Anna Martine Freeman, Alice McCarthy, Ed Eales-White and Ellie Morris reprise their roles in this poignant and highly comic production.
