Book
It’s totally familiar but dreamlike at the same time," observes one American of Amsterdam’s notorious Red Light District in the stunning new work from Adam Rapp. Escaping their lives in Manhattan, former college buddies Matt and Davis take off to the Netherlands and find themselves thrown into a bizarre love triangle with a beautiful young prostitute named Christina. But the romance they find in Europe is eventually overshadowed by the truth they discover at home. Written with an unflinching poetic beauty, Red Light Winter is a play of sexual intrigue that explores the myriad and misguided ways we seek to fill the empty spaces inside us.

Praise for Red Light Winter

"Riveting . . . A clever portrait of sexual obsession that never quite shows its hand...With one foot in the buddy comedy of Sideways and another in the macho diabolism of Neil LaBute...for sure, this will be Rapp's deserved breakthrough play . . ." —Chris Jones, Variety

"Spellbinding and haunting." —Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times

"An arresting study in melancholic triangulation and obsessions dashed . . . Shrewd about the way certain male friendships exist on the knife edge of disaster." —Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
