Amsterdam (Paperback)

By Maya Arad Yasur, Eran Edry (Translator)


Special Order—Subject to Availability

An Israeli 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.

First seen at the Haifa Theater, Israel, in 2018, Amsterdam received its UK premiere, in this English translation by Eran Edry, at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, in 2019, directed by Matthew Xia, in a co-production between the Orange Tree, Actors Touring Company and Theatre Royal Plymouth.

Maya Arad Yasur is a prize-winning Israeli playwright, whose work has been produced worldwide. Her plays include Amsterdam, God Waits at the Station, Ten Minutes from Home and Suspended. Eran Edry is a screenwriter, lyricist, script translator and story editor.
