With our Spring Season underway, including the London première of Maxine Peake’s Beryl which opens in March and Peter Whelan’s The Herbal Bed which opens here at the Rose in April, we are thrilled to announce today three major new productions for 2016.
In May, Trevor Nunn returns to the Rose, following his recent production of The Wars of the Roses, to open the season with William Shakespeare’s King John, marking the Bard's 400th anniversary.
September sees award-winning actor and director John Malkovich make his London directorial debut with the UK première of Zach Helm’s Good Canary in our co-production with Mihara Donegan Productions Ltd; and completing the season acclaimed American director Michael Rudman presents Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, the first Miller play to be produced at the Rose.
Our Chief Executive Robert O’Dowd said today, “It’s a huge honour for the Rose to be continuing our journey in this way – producing brilliant plays with some of the most exciting artists from both the theatre and film worlds. We feel enormously privileged to have both John Malkovich making his London directorial debut with Zach Helm’s Good Canary and another great American director Michael Rudman presenting his take on Arthur Miller’s classic All My Sons. And following last year’s extraordinary The Wars of the Roses, we are also delighted to be welcoming back Trevor Nunn to direct the epic King John.”
John Malkovich said “I’m delighted to be working at the Rose and very pleased to be working again on the Good Canary, and to be finally working on the play in its native language.”
