Duncan Macmillan's adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s thrilling Rosmersholm</em receives its premiere at Duke of York's Theatre, starring Hayley Atwell as the liberal-minded Rebecca West alongside Tom Burke as the conflicted head of the household Rosmer.

Duncan Macmillan's stunning and resonant adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s Rosmersholm premieres at Duke of York's Theatre.

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.

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).
