A violinist. Living in her trendy canal-side Amsterdam apartment. Nine months pregnant.
One day a mysterious unpaid gas bill from 1944 arrives.
Someone slides an envelope right under her door and then just walks away.
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.
Amsterdam is the UK premiere of a strikingly original and audacious play.
“A fascinating, multi-layered play…a complex web of interlocking thoughts, reflections and memories.” The Stage
“Brilliantly directed by Matthew Xia…an excellent showcase for his verve and imagination. Sends the audience into the night with the haunting question: what history hides in the walls of the building you live in?” Evening Standard
