Amsterdam

Written by Maya Arad Yasur / Directed by Matthew Xia

UK PREMIERE

An Israeli 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.

The UK premiere of a strikingly original, audacious thriller.

An ATC, Orange Tree Theatre and Drum, Theatre Royal Plymouth co-production

Maya Arad Yasur is a prize-winning Israeli playwright, whose work has been produced worldwide. Amsterdam won the prestigious Theatretreffen Stükemarkt Award. It is Arad-Yasur’s fourth play to be produced and her most personal.

Amsterdam is Matthew Xia’s first production as Artistic Director of ATC.

Amsterdam opens the Orange Tree Theatre's Autumn 2019 season and then will tour the UK in Spring 2020, beginning at Theatre Royal Plymouth.
