On That Day in Amsterdam
About On That Day in Amsterdam
To kick off our 35th Anniversary Season, Primary Stages is proud to present Clarence Coo’s world premiere, On That Day in Amsterdam, directed by Kareem Fahmy. In a time when your fate is determined by your passport, 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.
