  • World Premiere – A Rose Original Production

Written by Alys Metcalf
Directed by Christopher Haydon

'Think of it like carbon offsetting, except for morals.'

An unmissable new thriller from the Olivier Award-winning producer of Fleabag and Baby Reindeer to open the Rose’s 2021/22 season. Written by fast rising talent Alys Metcalf and directed by Christopher Haydon

When Niala arranges to meet celebrated charity leader, Ben, in the bar of a London hotel for career advice, their evening unfolds into something far less professional. As the weather closes in and secrets start to surface, the consequences of their choices leave them nowhere to hide.  

A gripping encounter that takes place over the course of one stormy night, Leopards is a play about the image we construct of ourselves and what it truly means to be good.
