A grand hotel in Switzerland. Guests enjoy their private, awkward, funny and not-so-funny lives while the world around them falls apart.
Zürich is a play about the big and the small, messes and who cleans them up, and the impossibility of neutrality.

This play was commissioned by Colt Coeur with the support of the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation.
Premiered April-May 2018 at NEW YORK THEATRE WORKSHOP's Next Door Series

Press

The 10 characters in “Zürich,” directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt in a polished Colt Coeur production, are human beings of the 21st century... Ms. Roper lends a bracingly astringent perspective to life as we know it today. “Zürich” takes what might be called a terrorist approach to the classic omnibus comedies associated with the likes of Alan Ayckbourn and Neil Simon.
— BEN BRANTLEY, NEW YORK TIMES
★★★★! Working with a superb multigenerational cast, Campbell-Holt fleshes out every uncomfortable nuance in Roper’s collection of mostly two-person conversations. Placid as some of the interactions might look from our voyeuristic vantage point, they are tense with potential violence; corruption, betrayal and resentment are never very far from the surface.
— JUAN MICHAEL PORTER II, TIME OUT NEW YORK
Ingeniously engineered... an ambitious concept... excellent ensemble cast...
— ELISABETH VINCENTELLI, NEW YORKER
Amelia Roper’s smart dialogue matched with winning performances makes Zürich a stand out.
— TIMES SQUARE CHRONICLES
This current production is a brainteaser. In a series of scenes, many issues of human interaction are addressed albeit even those awkward and very private ones that we’d never hope anyone might be privy to watch...From the emergence of these scenes, spiffily directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt, we peek into worlds of corruption, violence, frightening reality that touches all of our lives in a place that remains neutral. The writing is humor-laden.
