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

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

It's New Year in Rotterdam and Alice has finally plucked up the courage to email her parents and tell them she's gay. But before she can hit send, her girlfriend Fiona reveals that he has always identified as a man and now wants to start living as one named Adrian.

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

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

Duration: 2 hours 10mins with interval

"Sharp, witty and mind-blowing 'current' that is a great new play"
