Rotterdam by Jon Brittain
Rotterdam. New Year’s Eve. Alice is anxiously running spell check for the millionth time before she sends the email to her parents telling them she’s gay. Just before she can send it, her girlfriend Fiona reveals that she identifies as a man. After seven years of working out how to confidently say “I’m gay”, Alice finds herself asking “Am I straight?” Alice and Fiona – now Adrian – must re-navigate their relationship, Dutch bars, families, and what it means to love a woman, a man, a person.
This Olivier Award-winning comedy tells a contemporary love story from a refreshing and intimate perspective, taking us on a very funny and very human ride through questions about gender, identity, family and love.
Directed by Rebecca Blake; Produced by Amy Morcom
