A violinist. Living in her trendy canal-side Amsterdam apartment. Nine months pregnant.
One day a mysterious unpaid gas bill from 1944 arrives.
It awakens unsettling feelings of collective identity, foreignness and alienation. Stories of a devastating past are compellingly reconstructed to try and make sense of the present.
Amsterdam is the UK premiere of a strikingly original and audacious play.
Maya Arad Yasur is a prize-winning playwright, whose work has been produced worldwide.
This is Matthew Xia’s first production as Artistic Director of Actors Touring Company.
