"CRITICS'CHOICE - LA Times
"TOP TEN" - Stage Raw
New Year’s. Rotterdam, 2017. Alice has finally found the courage to email her parents to tell them she’s a lesbian. But before Alice hits send, her girlfriend Fiona reveals that she has always identified as a man, and now wants to live as one, sending their relationship into a tailspin. A queer love story, about all of us…
“GO!” – LA Weekly
Skylight Theatre Company brings this Olivier Award Winner & West Coast Premiere to Los Angeles. Amid a breaking wave of transgender stories in popular culture (Transparent, Boy Meets Girl, and Orange is the New Black), Jon Brittain has created a groundbreaking play, with deeply relatable characters that are flawed, and hilarious. Rotterdam is a comedy with powerful questions about love and identity at its core.
“To live your truth out loud can be dangerous,” says director Michael A. Shepperd. "But, to take that step into your authentic self can make you much more powerful than anything the world can throw at you. This is the world of Rotterdam.”
Cast: Ryan Brophy as Josh (Young Arts 2014 Finalist/Silver Award winner) Audrey Cain as Lelani (East West Players production of La Cage Aux Folles, and Friends in Transient Places by Fresh Produce’d LA with appearances at the Fountain Theatre, Chalk Rep and EST-LA) Ashley Romans as Fiona/Adrian (Charm at Celebration Theatre in 2016, and The Devil Lives in Clarksville County) Miranda Wynne as Alice (Cissy Franks in the West Coast premiere of Punk Rock at the Odyssey Theatre Ensemble).
