Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre
Following a critically-acclaimed, sell-out run at London's Theatre503 in 2015, and Traflagar Studios in 2016, Jon Brittain's Rotterdam comes to New York.
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?
A bittersweet comedy about gender, sexuality, and being a long way from home from writer Jon Brittain, co-creator of Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho, and writer of What Would Spock Do? and The Sexual Awakening of Peter Mayo.
The triumph of Rotterdam is the triumph of all great theater: It finds its way to the universal through the personal. - Theatermania
Rotterdam poses pertinent questions about what makes us who we are, with surprising humor and knockout performances from its cast of four. - Time Out New York
Gutsy, wrenching, and beautifully acted. - BlogCritics
