Chanje Kunda did what many people dream of but can’t quite bring themselves to do- she left her office, packed her suitcase and set off for a new life in Amsterdam. She moved from England to the Dutch city with her son after falling in love whilst on holiday in 2012. She has since turned the expereince into a capitvating stage show named after the city. The tale is a story of love, risk and liberation.
Amsterdam has been nominated for Best Studio Production in the Manchester Theatre Awards .
“I think it will sell well to anyone who’s chasing a dream, hankering after freedom, wished they could throw it all in, or fancies a bit of an affair! the themes of her relationship with her son are great- and will connect well with anyone who’s dealing with the realities of parenthood, unfulfilled dreams and fantasies of flying off somewhere.”
Sue Robinson Spot On, Lancashire
