Rotterdam is returning to the West End's Arts Theatre this summer!

 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?
After its triumphant win at the 2017 Olivier Awards, and a sell-out run in New York, the critically acclaimed Rotterdam returns to London for a strictly limited engagement at The Arts Theatre, London until 15 July only.
Rotterdam is a bittersweet comedy about gender, sexuality and being a long way from home written by Jon Brittain, writer of What Would Spock Do? and A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad).

‘Sharply observed, moving and very funny’ 

‘Jon Brittain’s beautifully structured comedy about gender and sexuality blends the laugh-out-loud funny and the dab-you-eyes tender. Very funny, very human, very touching, very entertaining. Wonderful.’
 ★★★★ The Times

Mikhael Grossmann13th July

I saw this play twice within a weeks that's how much I liked it. Now considering a third visit...

Chris 9th July

Really good show. Funny, sad in places and thought provoking. Only slight criticism was, where we were sat - at the back of the stalls - the audio levels weren't quite right on same occasions. Other than that the theatre too was very nice.

Shani Morton1st July

Great acting. Real life drama.

Barry1st July

Thought-provoking production augmented by stunning acting really bring this issue to life. Thoroughly gripping.

Jasmine Kerr30th June

A fantastic piece of powerful and important theatre. The cast were exceptional and the subject matter was explored and handled in a wonderfully human way! A brilliant play!

Harriet O'Neill30th June

Fantastic. Moving. Very funny.

Ian Higham29th June

Done with such humour, warmth and intelligence that yes, while it may very occasionally feel a little bit preachy, it is on the whole a really rather terrific, funny and moving relationship comedy-drama, that has important things to say about who we are and who we love. Go. Go Go.

andreas beroutsos27th June

Interesting topic, decent acting, but addresses in a conventional, banal way. Same for the direction of he play.

Shannon Chance25th June

Superbly written and acted play on an important topic.

Helen Corkin5th September

Good play poorly executed -,assi ely I reacted with the exception of the actress playing the Dutch girl.

Irene Perkoulidis27th August

This was a completely random pick from the tube adverts (I was visiting from Australia), and was blown away by the quality of this performance. The content and delivery was exceptional - and importantly, it presented a complex and painful topic so respectfully and in a way that allowed outsiders to comprehend. We were all in tears by the end.

Rachel Cunliffe26th August

Beautifully written, moving, at times tear-inducing, but sometimes hilarious, with an exceptional cast.
