Following a successful run at Theatre503 last year, Jon Brittain’s Rotterdam returns to the London stage this summer, for a limited season at the Trafalgar Studios. Running at the Trafalgar Studios from the 26th July until the 27th August, this production directed by  Donnacadh O’Briain will see Anna Martine, Alice McCarthy, Ed Eales-White and Jessica Clark reprise their roles.

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?

Rotterdam is a bittersweet comedy about gender, sexuality and being a long way from home, written by the a co-creator of Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho, and writer of What Would Spock Do? and The Sexual Awakening of Peter Mayo.

Director Donnacadh O’Briain comments: “There’s something really special about this play, and about the cast who brought it to life. Audiences were incredibly taken with it, I’ve rarely seen a reception like we had at Theatre503. We were entirely sold out a day or two after press night so it’s fantastic to be able to bring it back to a wider audience. I think it’s a must see and I’m not biased at all.”

Rotterdam plays at the Trafalgar Studios from the 26th July until the 27th August. To book tickets visit: ATG Tickets .
