Ian Rickson (The Birthday Party, Jerusalem) directs Tom Burke (TV’s Strike), Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter) and Giles Terera (Hamilton) in the West End premiere of Duncan Macmillan‘s (184, People, Places and Things) startling new adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s gripping and piercingly relevant work of personal and political passion.

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.

‘Ibsen’s masterpiece’ (Michael Billington, 2008) is a twisting thriller and stars three 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. Giles Terera (Hamilton, West End) is Andreas Kroll, a powerful moral voice, who struggles to reconcile his friendship to Rosmer amidst the changing political tides.

A brilliant take on Ibsen's work. The set, lighting and costumes were amazing. The scene at the end - powerful.

In all honesty, despite the amazing cast and the fact that I love Ibsen, I found this piece very difficult to connect with. It looked stunning and I was really looking forward to it. I confess I left in the interval. The actors were a touch quiet, and they seemed to speak in profile most of the time. I longed to see their faces. Also they had a tendency to upstage themselves, so I felt again excluded from what was going on. I know other many people have raved about this production, but I felt let down.

This was the first time I have seen Rosmersholm. I love how Ibsens dialogue always seems so relevant to current events. This production was excellent the staging and acting were really impressive. Time passed so quickly. As already stated I had never seen this play before and knew very little about it so the ending was surprising and I have to say rather a let down. In fact it was ridiculous and this is the reason for the 4star rating

What a superb production of Rosmersholm is this current one. I am very fond of Ibsen but it's the first time I have seen this one. The set was great and the principal actors were outstanding, particularly Hayley Atwell.

Thought I'd seen all Ibsens but not this one! Usual themes, women's emancipation, unjust society & suicide. Brilliantly portrayed by all the cast, lots of little humorous moments to relieve the ultimate tragedy. Beautiful set. A perfect theatrical experience.
