James Graham’s new show Sketching attempts a purer form of anthology, blending stories from eight competition winners to co-create a patchwork of London life.
A story about transsexuality, self-identity and sacrifice. Witty and gut-wrenching, stylised and simple. Can a single production encompass all these things and leave an audience wanting more? Seldom. Then along comes Rotterdam.
New drama about a transgender lesbian is not only hugely enjoyable, but also thought-provoking.
What a treat it was to not only see Jon Brittain‘s Rotterdam again last night, but to be able to question this hugely talented young writer about his bittersweet comedy, which ranked amongst my Top Ten new plays of last year.
