Rotterdam

By Jon Brittain
The Carne Studio Theatre, LAMDA

Synopsis

New Year’s Eve. The email is drafted and ready to send.

With the countdown approaching, Alice has finally decided to tell her parents she is gay. As she gets ready to press send, she is interrupted by her girlfriend Fiona who reveals that he has always identified as a man and would now like to start living as one named Adrian. 

Adrian’s transition leads to Alice facing a question she never thought she’d ask… does this mean she’s straight?
