Colt Coeur presents the world premiere of Amelia Roper's Zürich as part of the company’s 2017–2018 season and New York Theatre Workshop’s NEXT DOOR Series. The new play, in which hotel guests enjoy the last moments of their private, awkward, funny and not-so-funny lives, grapples with issues of nationalism, tourism, isolation, class, and gender expectations.
Colt Coeur's artistic director Adrienne Campbell-Holt directs the debut production, which officially opened April 17 at The Fourth Street Theatre.
