The Olivier award winning bittersweet comedy about gender, sexuality and being a long way from home from writer Jon Brittain, writer of What Would Spock Do? and A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad).

Alice wants to come out as a lesbian. Her girlfriend Fiona wants to start living as a man named Adrian. Now, as he begins his transition, Alice faces a question she never thought she'd ask... does this mean she's straight?

Following a critically-acclaimed, sell-out run at Trafalgar Studios in 2016, and in 59E59 Theaters Brits Off Broadway Season in New York, Jon Brittain's Olivier award winning Rotterdam comes to The Arts Theatre this Spring.
