Rosmersholm Tickets

Duncan Macmillan's stunning and resonant adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s Rosmersholm premieres at Duke of York's Theatre. Starring Tom Burke and Hayley Atwell, this revival of a masterpiece charts love, politics, past and future, with plenty of twists thrown in for good measure. The production marks the 10th collaboration between director Ian Rickson and Sonia Friedman Productions. It runs in the West End from 24 April 2019.

Rosmersholm is positioned against the backdrop of a looming election, an atmosphere of uncertainty and a bloodthirsty press. In the grand house of an influential dynasty, John Rosmer holds the future in his hands. As he wanders the line between idealism and a painful past, he finds himself ever more torn.

Tom Burke stars as Rosmer, the conflicted former clergyman and owner of the manor. As well as having appeared in TV series The Musketeers and Strike, Burke has starred in 2016 production of The Deep Blue Sea at the National Theatre.

Hayley Atwell stars as free-thinking Rebecca West, one of Ibsen's most formidable heroines. Atwell has appeared in the film Captain America and the miniseries Howards End, while her recent stage credits include and Dry Powder at Hampstead Theatre and Measure for Measure at the Donmar Warehouse.

Sharing the stage with them are Lucy Briers (Wolf Hall), Giles Terera (Hamilton), Jake Fairbrother (Lady from the Sea) and Peter Wight (The Birthday Party).

Set and costumes are courtesy of Rae Smith, with lighting by Neil Austin and music by Stephen Warbeck. Sound is by Gregory Clarke and casting is the work of Amy Ball CDG.

Award-winning writer and director Duncan Macmillan has a glittering resume of stage works to his name, including the highly acclaimed People Places and Things and Every Brilliant Thing. He has accrued an array of awards throughout his career and has twice been nominated for an Olivier Award for Best New Play.

Director Ian Rickson was the Artistic Director of the Royal Court between 1998 and 2006. His directorial credits include Hamlet at the Young Vic and Translations at the National Theatre.

I really enjoyed this show. It was fantastically acted, especially by Hayley Atwell, who played Rebecca West to absolute perfection. The story is a fantastic social commentary, as with much of Ibsen's plays, with a real focus on the power play between men, women and the church at the time he was writing. It was intense and gripping from start to finish.

A very enjoyable production of one of Ibsen's lesser known plays. Although written over 120 years ago, it felt so relevant to today's society particularly with the politics of today. Stellar performances from Tom Burke and Hayley Atwell with an absolutely amazing set and lighting design.

Great production and acting. Not sure about the storyline that champions wider equality and the intellectual independence of the female character, to reverting back to common themes of being susceptible to hysteria and irrational actions (not to give the ending away). I guess it was progressive for the time though.

I knew nothing about this play and only really booked because of the cast, and I thought it was absolutely brilliant! Incredible performances all round, great lighting and design, and the story kept me gripped the whole way through.
