Amsterdam
Everyone knows, all of them…that when all’s said and done, she is no more than a fig leaf hiding the thing everyone else would be much happier never having to look at.

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.
