At Rose Playhouse, Bankside, London ...

Venus and Adonis By William Shakespeare Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th and Tuesday 14th to Saturday 25th August 2012. Shakespeare’s most sexually explicit work comes to the Rose! The exquisite use of language is beautifully conveyed in this, his first published work (1593). Venus and Adonis is a thrilling exploration of love, lust and grief. Join us and celebrate the humanity and genius of Shakespeare’s early work. This performance is only one hour long- so plenty of time to eat or go for a drink afterwards! Tickets £12 / £10 Concessions The Rape of Lucrece By William Shakespeare Tuesday 7th to Sunday 12th August 2012. Gerard Logan (Olivier Award nominee and RSC actor ) stars in the first ever solo adaptation of Shakespeare’s brilliant, brutal narrative poem about the dreadful crime of rape and its aftershock. Shakespeare goes beyond the obvious, shining a light on a band of human behaviour encompassing the bestial and the beautiful. Gerard won Best Solo Performer Award, Edinburgh Festival 2011 from The Stage and will return to the Rose with this very special production as part of the London 2012 Celebrations. Tickets £12 / £10 Concessions Actor Revealed an Evening with Liam Brennan Monday 10th September 2012 Liam forsakes Scotland to return to the Globe Theatre this season. He reprises Orsino in Twelfth Night and is Clarence in Richard III . He is specially remembered at the Globe for his Edward II, Bolingbroke. and naturally the Old Woman in the Golden Ass in which he met a sticky end! Intervening years cast him as Iago, Bassanio and in many leading classical and modern roles often at the Royal Lyceum Edinburgh. He has also worked as far South as Charles Edward Stuart ventured. Liam has kindly agreed to support the Rose by conversing with you about The Rose, theatre / theatres and acting. The Rose is delighted that Liam is lending his support to its recently announced Rose Revealed Project to finally fully dig and display the site. This will be the first Actor Revealed and all money raised will contribute to the Project. All Tickets £5.00 CARDENIO at the Rose, Bankside 4th - 29th September 2012 ‘In 1611, a play was submitted to censor with no definitive author. Several characters were unnamed and there was no title. The plots within were adapted from episodes of Cervantes’ Don Quixote, and in the 1990s, the palaeographer Charles Hamilton attested that this play was the lost Shakespeare, Cardenio. Debate has abounded since, and to coincide with the publication of Jonathan Busby and Luis del Aguila’s edit, the Aporia Theatre Collective are proudly presenting their celebrated production at the Rose, Bankside. This is an indelible and disturbing play that deals with obsession, amorality, suspicion and, ultimately, revenge. Performances 7.30pm Tuesday to Saturday and 3.30pm Sunday (No Monday performances) and tickets cost £12 or £10 for concessions (OAP, Student or Equity -on presentation of ID) and are available from the Rose Box Office by calling 020 7261 9565 or email As the Rose is an indoor archaeological site, it is advisable to dress with an extra layer as there is no heating.
