Rose Theatre Kingston
Founded by Sir Peter Hall and modelled on the original Elizabethan Rose Theatre on London's Bankside, Rose Theatre Kingston is the largest producing theatre in South West London.
Since opening in 2008, the Rose has collaborated with a range of directors, playwrights and producing partners to create vibrant, engaging and inspiring productions. Current works include the world premiere of Hogarth's Progress, a riotous double bill of plays by BAFTA Award-winning writer Nick Dear, opening at the Rose this September.
Recent works include: The first stage adaptation and world premiere of Elena Ferrante's My Brilliant Friend adapted by April De Angelis and directed by Melly Still; Zach Helm's hard-hitting play Good Canary directed by John Malkovich; David Hare's The Absence of War directed by Jeremy Herrin and Jacqueline Wilson's Hetty Feather (West End transfer and Olivier Award nominee) directed by Sally Cookson.
With over 150,000 visitors a year, the Rose enjoys artistic and critical acclaim from its own productions and co-productions as well as from hosting the work of renowned theatre companies including Theatre Royal Bath, Bristol Old Vic, Headlong, and Royal Shakespeare Company. With an auditorium that lends itself to both intimate and epic scale productions, the Rose has established itself as one of the most exciting theatres in the UK.
