Gothenburg English Studio Theatre presents the Scandinavian premiere of

Rotterdam

by Jon Brittain

 

A romantic comedy for our time

 

It’s New Year’s Eve in Rotterdam and Alice is finally, after seven years – almost, nearly – ready to tell her parents she’s gay, when her partner drops a bombshell and everything changes! Or does it?

 

British playwright Jon Brittain's Olivier Award-winning play is a bittersweet romantic comedy portraying LGBTQI+ experiences. Join us for this laugh-out-loud, yet tender story of love, identity – and fireworks!

**** Telegraph

**** ‘smartly observed and very funny’ Evening Standard

(original London production)

"Theatre that really allows queer protagonists to be wonderful, complex and difficult at the same time doesn´t grow on trees in Gothenburg. Let's build a garden where more productions like "Rotterdam" can grow. Until then, I think you should bring both queer and straight friends to GEST for two and a half hours of bittersweet but romantic comedy."

- Sandra Grehn, Göteborgs Posten
