NEWS: West End Transfer of Martin Sherman’s Rose Announced

The production, starring Maureen Lipman will begin performances at the Ambassadors Theatre from the 23rd May.

Following runs at the Hope Mill Theatre, Manchester, and The Park Theatre, the award winning production returns to London – this time to the West End’s Ambassadors Theatre for 28 performances only. Tickets are on sale now.

This revival will see Maureen Lipman reprising her role in the title role, a woman whose journey through anarchic times takes her from the devastation of Nazi- occupied Europe to the allure of the American dream. Her numerous theatre credits include Outside Edge, Messiah, See How They Run, Wonderful Town, Re:Joyce, Glorious, Oklahoma, A Little Night
Music and Daytona. She has spent the last five years in Coronation Street as Evelyn Plummer.

Rose is written by Martin Sherman, whose other plays include: Bent, Messiah, A MadHouse in Goa, When She Danced, Some Sunny Day and Gently Down The Stream.

The play was originally produced at The National Theatre and on Broadway in 1999 and this revival is directed by Scott Le Crass, designed by David Shields with musical composition and Sound design by Julian Star with lighting design by Jane Lalljee.

Talking about the news of the transfer, Maureen Lipman said: ” I am delighted to be putting Rose back on her bench for a limited run at the Ambassadors in May. I thought I could never have the power to revisit Martin Sherman’s mystical, magical deeply philosophical and wildly funny creation, but Rose is in my blood and she has to be revived.”
