The Actors Touring Company has announced full casting for the upcoming UK tour of Maya Arad Yasur’s audacious play, Amsterdam, which opens at Theatre Royal Plymouth from 27 February to 14 March before touring to Salisbury, Glasgow, Manchester, Oxford, Coventry, Leeds, Birmingham and Newcastle.
Amsterdam is a co-production with the Orange Tree Theatre & Theatre Royal Plymouth and will be the first tour under ATC Artistic Director Matthew Xia.
Joining original cast member Michal Horowicz will be Anyebe Godwin, Uri Levy, and Anya Jaya.
A violinist. Living in her trendy canal-side Amsterdam apartment. Nine months pregnant. One day a mysterious unpaid gas bill from 1944 arrives.
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.
Examining the experience of the outsider in a highly structured society and revealing how uncomfortable truths are often buried just below the surface, Amsterdam explores the individual’s relationship with their personal past and with the wider histories that define them.
