Watch an online stream of Amsterdam below for free from 7.30pm tonight
An Israeli 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, audacious thriller. Maya Arad Yasur is a prize-winning playwright, whose work has been produced worldwide and this is Matthew Xia’s first production as Artistic Director of Actors Touring Company.
