A Message from ATC

Matthew Xia, Artistic Director of Actors Touring Company says:

“Our production of ‘Amsterdam’, by Maya Arad Yasur was staged at the Orange Tree Theatre last September and filmed by The Space and the Roundhouse. It was streamed online in January.

For the first time in living memory we find our theatres closed, our community of talented doers, thinkers and makers – hunkered away in their homes, and our tour of Amsterdam – which we’re thankful achieved a short run at Plymouth Theatre Royal – on ice.

We’re proud of this production, and looked forward to taking it across the country and sharing it with you. We still want to – and so, like many other great companies, we’re making the original production available again. It’s free to watch – and hopefully serves as a reminder of the power of coming together, of thinking, laughing, and imagining together.

We can’t wait to get back to it. See you soon.

If you love theatre, keep in touch us and with your local theatre. We want to keep hearing from you and supporting each other.”


“Enormously rewarding”

“Brilliantly directed by Matthew Xia, Amsterdam is an excellent showcase for his verve and imagination”
