No, Alice, I don’t want to become a man, I just want to stop trying to be a woman.’
Following a critically-acclaimed, sell-out run at Theatre503 in 2015, Jon Brittain‘s Rotterdam returns to London this summer.
Alice wants to come out as a lesbian. Her girlfriend wants to start living as a man.
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 reveals that he has always identified as a man and now wants to start living as one.
Now Alice must face a question she never thought she’d ask… does this mean she’s straight?
A bittersweet comedy about gender, sexuality and being a long way from home from writer Jon Brittain, co-creator of Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho, and writer of What Would Spock Do? and The Sexual Awakening of Peter Mayo.
