On That Day in Amsterdam
Primary Stages kicks off its 2019-2020 Off-Broadway season with the world premiere of On That Day in Amsterdam, written by Clarence Coo and directed by Kareem Fahmy.
UPDATE: The world premiere production of On That Day in Amsterdam has been indefinitely postponed.
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.
