Show Info

By Clarence Coo
Directed by Zi Alikhan

In a time when your fate is determined by your passport, Clarence Coo’s deeply arresting play captures a transient moment of magic. The morning after a one-night stand, a refugee from the Middle East wakes up next to an American backpacker who is himself the son of immigrants. With only a day until the two young men must each leave Amsterdam, they set off on a romantic journey through the city. Moved by the spirits of Rembrandt, Van Gogh, and Anne Frank, ON THAT DAY IN AMSTERDAM witnesses these two young dreamers count down their remaining hours together, discovering the meaning of art, love, and loss.

Post-performance talkbacks led by a member of Primary Stages artistic staff will be held after the performances on Sunday, August 14 and Wednesday, August 24.

ON THAT DAY IN AMSTERDAM is supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
