Olivier Award winner Rotterdam at London’s Arts Theatre
Following a critically-acclaimed, sell-out run at London’s Theatre503 in 2015, and Trafalgar Studios in 2016, and in 59E59 Theater’s Brits Off Broadway Season in New York, Jon Brittain’s Olivier award winning Rotterdam comes to The Arts Theatre this Spring.
Rotterdam is a bittersweet comedy about gender, sexuality and being a long way from home. Reprising their roles in this poignant production are Anna Martine Freeman (The Nether), Alice McCarthy (Boris: World King), Ed Eales-White (Strap In – It’s Clever Peter) and Ellie Morris (Peter Pan Goes Wrong).
Rotterdam runs from 21 June 2017 until 15 July 2017 at the Arts Theatre.
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 a man and now wants to start living as one named Adrian.
Now, as Adrian begins his transition, Alice must face a question she never thought she’d ask… does this mean she’s straight?
The cast features Anna Martine Freeman, Alice McCarthy, Ed Eales-White and Ellie Morris.
Jon Brittain has written four wonderful characters, the central couple giving McCarthy and Martine the chance to put in two powerful performances. – Time Out
Smartly observed and very funny… warm and emotionally intelligent – Evening Standard
A very human play, one that never feels overtly issue-driven or forced… properly laugh-out-loud funny – The Stage
