The award-winning, critically acclaimed production of Martin Sherman’s Rose transfers to the Ambassador’s Theatre for 28 performances from Tuesday 23rd May after sell-out runs at Hope Mill Theatre, Manchester and The Park Theatre.


Olivier Award winner Maureen Lipman has performed with The National Theatre and The Royal Shakespeare Company and has starred in innumerable West End productions including Messiah, Wonderful Town, ReJoice, Glorious, Oklahoma & Daytona. For the last five years she has been delighting television audiences as Evelyn Plummer on Coronation Street.


Written by award-winning Martin Sherman whose other plays include Bent, Messiah, A Mad House in Goa as well as When She Danced. Films include Alive and Kicking and Mrs Henderson Presents as well as the Broadway Musical The Boy From Oz.


Rose, a woman whose tumultuous journey through anarchic times takes her from the devastation of Nazi occupied Europe to the allure of the American dream. Through the life of one woman Rose tells the story of a century where everything changed except the violence of the strong against the weak.


The original production of Rose was produced at the National Theatre and on Broadway in 1999. It is perhaps even more relevant today, with the plight of refugees and allegations of antisemitism continuing to dominate the news. This powerful production is a moving reminder of the harrowing events that shaped the last century.

    This is an excellent production that I really enjoyed. Dame Maureen is great and holds the interest of the audience. The story is sometimes quite emotional, but also has elements of humour. This was certainly an outstanding and memorable performance that looked at Jewish heritage, history, identity and memory across the 20th century while Rose is sitting shiva. Sadly, the show is closing at The Ambassadors Theater on June 18th.

    Maureen Lipman, transported us through her protagonist’s life journey. Heavy, poignant, sad, hard to hear, full of personal conflicts and yet heart warming and funny. Maureen is a brilliant actor 👏👏👏
