It has been confirmed that Martin Sherman’s play Rose, starring Olivier Award winner Maureen Lipman will be shown for free on Sky Arts on
Wednesday 27th January at 10pm.

This news follows on from previous online runs of the production directed by Scott Le Crass (Country Music, Omnibus Theatre; Elmer, UK and International tour). Following its broadcast on the 27th January, the production will then return online and will be made available to watch o Broadway HD.

Blending the personal with the political, this sharply drawn portrait of a feisty Jewish woman traces Rose’s story from the devastation of Nazi-ruled Europe to conquering the American dream. Rose reflects on what it means to be a survivor. Her remarkable life began in a tiny Russian village, took her to Warsaw’s ghettos and a ship called The Exodus, and finally to the
boardwalks of Atlantic City, the Arizona canyons, and salsa-flavoured nights in Miami beach.

Talking about the news, Producer Thomas Hopkins of Ginger Quiff Media said: ” We’re thrilled to bring Rose back, fittingly on Holocaust Memorial Day, which serves as a timely reminder of the plight of a generation. Maureen Lipman embodies the story, and we can’t wait for a wider audience to experience this ‘tour de force’ performance on both Sky Arts and BroadwayHD.”
