Rotterdam

Over the years we have seen some top shows come and go, but Rotterdam has been near the top of the list of the must-sees. After all, Jon Brittain’s play has enjoyed a long journey of success since it was first staged in London back in 2015 and now that 2017 has rolled along it is time for another legion of theatregoers to flock to the West End.

It plays at the Arts Theatre in a year that also brings shows such as The Toxic Avenger, The Wipers Times and Judy! to the venue, making it a top place to witness some unique shows in the West End. Rotterdam only proves this further.

After all, it is a smart and poignant comedy that offers a thought-provoking look at sexuality and the trans community.

Writer Jon Britain earned well-deserved praise for Rotterdam when it opened in London in 2015. It landed him an Off West End Award nomination and solidified his status as a writer with a bright future ahead of him. His other work includes Phillipa And Will Are Now In A Relationship and Margaret Thatcher: Queen Of Soho.

On this occasion he presents Rotterdam at the West End’s Arts Theatre, having previously presented the show in the West End when it played at the Trafalgar Studios, and it will once again offer a poignant and memorable evening at the theatre.

The show, as the title suggests, is set in Rotterdam (writer Brittain grew up in the Netherlands) and it focuses on the characters of Alice and Fiona. They are both in a relationship and Alice is finally ready to tell her parents that she is gay when she is hit with a quandary. Fiona has announced that he wishes to live his life as a man named Adrian, having always considered himself a part of the opposite sex. This begs a difficult question for Alice to answer – is she really gay after all?

Rotterdam plays at the Arts Theatre from Wednesday 21st June 2017.
