A shiny study of love and sexuality

The Guardian, 2015

Why See Rotterdam?

Heading to the West End this June!

Jon Brittain's touching drama that explores the aftermath of gender transition and relationships heads to the West End this June. Transferring back from New York as part of a Brits Off Broadway season, it first premiered at London's Theatre 503 in 2015, winning an Olivier Award for outstanding achievement in affiliate theatre. Now it heads to the heart of the West End at the Arts Theatre in Soho for a limited engagement. Not to be missed!

Alice and Fiona are living in Rotterdam, a city of movement as lovers. Alice is living in fear of her parents finding out that she is gay, Fiona has her own confusion about her identity to contend with. When Alice finally plucks up the courage to go home and come out to her family, Fiona drops a bombshell; she identifies as a man called Adrian, and plans to transition.

Alice is confused and devastated; can she be a lesbian if stays with Adrian? Will Adrian ever be accepted as a man, and can Adrianís brother, Josh, heal his heart and move on from loss? This four-hander has been critically praised for its sensitive, thoughtful and humorous exploration of sexuality and gender.
