Said it before so let’s say it again and this time hope they put it on the posters: “Jon Brittain’s Rotterdam is the best ‘gay play’ since My Night With Reg” – a clever sharply-observed comedy riffing on gender fluidity with dry wit and crackling dialogue and which has now set new standards for the genre.

Rotterdam is something quite special. A thoroughly well-crafted piece of comic writing, with naturalistic and credible characters in situations which engage you, smartly staged and directed, and with a faultless cast. It’s hilarious, thought-provoking, sensitive. That it happens also to be the best ‘gay play’ in London since My Night With Reg seems almost irrelevant.
