Why See Rosmersholm?
West End Premiere
Ibsen's thrilling masterpiece finally premieres on the West End this spring in this new adaptation from Duncan MacMillan, starring Tom Burke (Comoran Strike) and Hayley Atwell (Brideshead Revisited, Agent Carter). Haunting and highly relevant, what begins as a tale of political and social change soon delves far deeper, taking us into the house at the centre of it all; Rosmersholm, and its conflicted master, John Rosmer.
Whilst Rosmer seeks to buck tradition and support the revolutionary new order, he is paralysed by the ghosts of his own past and the appearance of the perplexing Rebecca West. As he strives to stick to his ideals, it seems that Rebecca, a friend of his late wife, will do anything to upend life as he knows it.
Directed by Ian Rickson (Mojo, Jerusalem) this exciting new production promises to deliver Ibsen's deeply passionate work in a contemporary and utterly unforgettable manner.
