Rose Tickets

Ambassadors Theatre

Maureen Lipman stars in the West End transfer of this poignant and tender one woman play, set over the course of the 20th century.

A powerful, tender one woman play

Olivier Award winner Maureen Lipman stars in a five-star revival of one woman play Rose at the Ambassadors Theatre. This Park Theatre production is a sharply drawn, compelling story of one Jewish woman’s journey across the 20th century.

Born and raised in Europe, the rise of the Nazis made Rose look West, where the allure of the American dream was calling. She may be just one woman, but Rose is telling the story of an entire generation who witnessed so much change, and so much stay the same.

Martin Sherman’s thought-provoking play is an intimate and moving account of a turbulent century that left indelible marks. It first premiered in 1999, and is made all the more urgent by stories of refugees and antisemitism still dominating the news.

Maureen Lipman stars in director Scott Le Crass’ production, bringing the funny, warm and humorous Rose to life. Her other credits include Oklahoma!, Glorious and, on television, Coronation Street.

Boasting a perfectly-pitched performance from Lipman, Rose tickets offer a jolting glimpse into our not-too-distant past.

Outstanding! Maureen Lipman was fantastic in it. Such a moving portrayal of a Jewish woman surviving WW2 and how she survived life thereafter. The story is told as Rose is coming to the end of her life due to ill health and she recounts her life and Read more

Maureen Lipman was mesmerising, the time flew by, simple set with her sat on a bench mid stage, a mixture of laugh out loud funny to gasping horror, i'm not a big play goer, more Musicals but this was brilliant and thought provoking and so well acted

Maureen Lipman was absolutely amazing, totally enthralled by the storytelling. The play was so well written taking you through the past traumas to the present differences with the next generations. Highly recommend.
