The Rose Theatre was founded by the famous theatre director Sir Peter Hall and first opened its doors in 2008. Since its inaugural show, Uncle Vanya, the Rose has built its reputation on presenting its own vibrant productions. However, it also regularly welcomes works by acclaimed touring theatre companies, making Rose Theatre tickets the hottest in south-west London. Companies which often visit the Rose include the Royal Shakespeare Company, Shakespeare’s Globe and West Yorkshire Playhouse.
The Rose Theatre’s fantastic productions enjoy critical acclaim and often end up transferring to the West End. Some of its most famous productions include A Midsummer Night’s Dream starring Judi Dench and the world premiere of My Brilliant Friend. The Rose’s production of Stones in his Pockets won an Olivier Award for Best New Comedy. It also ran for four years on the West End.
The Rose Theatre’s thrust stage, based on the original Rose Theatre’s Elizabethan layout, makes it ideal for experiencing the works of Shakespeare. However, the theatre’s roof and modern seats also give it a level of 21st-century comfort. Visitors at the front can even sit on cushions. In total, the Rose’s auditorium seats 899 people, making it intimate and awe-inspiring in equal measure.
Outside the main theatre, visitors can indulge in cakes and pastries at the Rose Cafe. They can also attend meetings in the David Jacobs Room with cityscape views, grab a pre-show drink at the Circle Bar, or see what’s happening at the theatre's upstairs Gallery.
