Due to popular demand, Hope Mill Theatre’s highly-acclaimed digital revival of Martin Sherman’s Olivier-nominated Rose, will be extending its run for two weeks. Initially billed as a three-day event, the production has seen huge acclaim since its launch, lauding praise for Maureen Lipman’s (Coronation Street, ITV; Celebrity Gogglebox, Channel 4; The Pianist) ‘tour de force’ performance.
In collaboration with the Hope Mill Theatre, the production was filmed on-stage to an empty auditorium and is available to download and stream until 26th September 2020. Directed by Scott Le Crass (Country Music, Omnibus Theatre; Elmer, UK and International Tour), in close collaboration with Sherman, Rose is a moving reminder of some of the harrowing events that shaped the century. It remains sadly relevant today as racial tensions escalate, and allegations of antisemitism are rife.
This sharply drawn portrait of a feisty Jewish woman blends the personal with the political as it traces Rose’s story from the devastation of Nazi-ruled Europe to conquering the American dream. Rose reflects on what it means to be a survivor. Her remarkable life began in a tiny Russian village took her to Warsaw’s ghettos and a ship called The Exodus, and finally to the boardwalks of Atlantic City, the Arizona canyons, and salsa-flavoured nights in Miami beach.
