Two young men, an American backpacker and a Syrian refugee, meet in a gay club in Amsterdam and spend the next day together knowing their paths will never cross again. As they visit the former homes of Rembrandt, Van Gogh, and Anne Frank, they discover the meaning of love, art, and escape in the context of Europe’s current migrant crisis.
On That Day in Amsterdam features Chris Arreola, Cole Haenggi, Jasper Howard (Damascus), Brianna Soumokil (Fun Home) and Jonathan Thompson (The Flick, I and You).
This workshop reading of On That Day in Amsterdam is free and open to the public. No reservations are required, and seating is first-come, first-served.
