Rose is a one woman show that offers a portrait of a feisty Jewish woman blends the personal with the political as it traces Rose’s story from the devastation of Nazi-ruled Europe to conquering the American
dream.

The play written Martin Sherman (Bent, 1979) was nominated for an Olivier Award when it first premiered at the National Theatre in 1999. This new production is directed by Scott Le Crass (Country Music, Omnibus Theatre; Elmer, UK and International tour).

The role of Rose was originally made famous by Olympia Dukakis, with Maureen Lipman taking on the role for three performances in September. Talking about the news Lipman said: ” I always wanted to play Rose in Martin Sherman’s play but this is the first time I have been available -if you call working on Coronation Street at the same time as learning forty five pages of stunning dialogue, availability. It gives me a thrill to think I will be
doing it for a cause as great as the future of the Hope Mill Theatre.”

Rose will be performed across three nights on the 10th,11th and 12th September. For more information and to book tickets visit: https://hopemilltheatre.co.uk/events/rose
