Synopsis: "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."

The creative team behind On That Day in Amsterdam features scenic design by Brian Prather, costume design by Dina El-Aziz, lighting design by Matt Frey, sound design by Mark Van Hare, and projection design by Shawn Duan.

On That Day in Amsterdam is produced Off-Broadway by Primarys Stages in association with Ted Snowdon.
