• Directed by Richard Beecham (Playing for Time, Sheffield Crucible; Dancing at Lughnasa, Royal & Derngate; Rutherford & Son, Northern Stage)
HOME is delighted to announce the first UK revival of Martin Sherman’s award-winning Rose, which premiered at the National Theatre in London in 1999. Directed by Richard Beecham, Janet Suzman takes on the role of the eponymous Rose.
From her home in Miami, USA, eighty-year-old Rose takes us on a journey through her long and tumultuous life, a life marked by oppression, displacement, suffering and survival. A life which begins in the shtetls of Eastern Europe and continues through Nazi-occupied Poland, British Mandate Palestine, America, Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories. An epic in miniature, Rose tells the extraordinary story of a century – with warmth and humour – directly through the eyes of one remarkable woman.
As the current refugee crisis engulfs Europe, as America closes its doors to refugees, and as racism, xenophobia and nationalism are resurgent across the globe, this revival of Rose is extremely topical and timely.
Janet Suzman commented: “This anarchic, agnostic tearaway got to me when I read Martin Sherman’s terrific play. Rose’s ironical self-awareness, her independence of spirit, her fierce instinct for survival is the story we all want to hear about the human spirit at its bravest. In the end she finds a moral purpose to a life forged in an immoral world. I salute Rose and her like.”
