Olivier Award-winning Rotterdam transfers to the Arts Theatre
New season at the Arts Theatre announced.
It has been announced that Jon Brittain's Olivier award winning drama Rotterdam will transfer to Arts Theatre for a limited run from 21 June to 15 July 2017. This run follows a sell-out run at Trafalgar Studios in 2016 as well as a run at the 59E59 Theaters Brits Off Broadway Season in New York.
"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?"
Described as a bittersweet comedy about gender, sexuality and being a long way from home, Rotterdam is directed by Donnacadh O’Briain with lighting by Richard Williamson, sound by Keegan Curran and design by Ellan Parry.
The cast includes Anna Martine Freeman (Fiona / Adrian), Alice McCarthy (Alice), Ed Eales-White (Josh) and Ellie Morris (Lelani).
Director Donnacadh O’Briain said: "Rotterdam made me laugh-out-loud and well up with tears from the first time I picked it out of a pile of scripts, and it continues to do that every time I see it. It's an honour and a joy to share that with the theatre capital of the world."
Jon Brittain's previous plays include What Would Spock Do? and A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad).
Rotterdam tickets are now on sale.
