Rosmersholm tickets at the Duke of York’s Theatre, London

Duke of York's Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Ian Rickson directs Tom Burke, Hayley Atwell and Giles Terera in the West End premiere of Duncan Macmillan‘s startling new adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s gripping and piercingly relevant work of personal and political passion Rosmersholm.

‘Ibsen’s masterpiece’ (Michael Billington, 2008) is a twisting thriller and stars two electrifying actors in the leading roles. Tom Burke (Strike, The Musketeers) is the soulful Rosmer haunted by history and tradition. Hayley Atwell (Howards End, Captain America) is Rebecca West, one of Ibsen’s greatest heroines. Enigmatic and unpredictable, free-spirited Rebecca brings the winds of change to Rosmersholm with the force of a hurricane.

Rosmersholm is booking from 24 April 2019 until 20 July 2019 at the Duke of York’s Theatre, London.

WHAT’S THE STORY?

‘Now I see that love is selfish. It makes you a country of two. At war with the rest of the world.”

An election looming. A country on the brink. A rabid press baying for blood. At the centre of the storm is Rosmersholm, the grand house of an influential dynasty. This is where the future will be decided by John Rosmer – a man torn between the idealised hope of the future and the ghosts of his past.

WHO’S IN IT? ROSMERSHOLM CAST

The cast features Tom Burke, Hayley Atwell, Lucy Briers, Jake Fairbrother, Giles Terera and Peter Wight.
