Why go and see it?

Following a critically-acclaimed West End run, Jon Brittain's Rotterdam is embarking on a UK tour.

'No, Alice, I don’t want to become a man, I just want to stop trying to be a woman.’

Production shot

As Adrian begins his transition, Alice must face a question she never thought she'd ask... does this mean she's straight?

Smartly observed and very funny… warm and emotionally intelligent
- Evening Standard

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

What the critics say

Britain’s play is another reminder - warm, witty and wise - of the stupidity of thinking that there are only two genders

Originally The New Theatre, it opened on Boxing Day, 1912. It went through several iterations, being renamed once before becoming the Opera House in 1920. It's also been used for different functions; as a cinema in WW2, then a bingo hall before reopening as a theatre again in 1984. Since, it has hosted magnificent shows like Barnum and Phantom of the Opera.
