Casting news

FURTHER casting has been announced for Henrik Ibsen’s Rosmersholm. Adapted by Duncan Macmillan (People, Places and Things, 1984) and directed by Ian Rickson (Jerusalem, The Birthday Party), it runs at the Duke of York’s Theatre from May 2 (previews from April 24) to July 20, 2019.

Joining previously announced Tom Burke and Hayley Atwell will be Giles Terera (pictured), who won an Olivier Award for his acclaimed performance in Hamilton (West End); Lucy Briers (Wolf Hall, West End/Broadway and The Seagull, Chichester Festival Theatre); Jake Fairbrother (Lady from the Sea, Donmar Warehouse and The Maids, HOME Manchester); and Peter Wight (The Birthday Party, West End and Hamlet, Almeida/West End).

Now I see that love is selfish. It makes you a country of two. At war with the rest of the world.

An election looming. A country on the brink. A rabid press baying for blood. At the centre of the storm is Rosmersholm, the grand house of an influential dynasty. This is where the future will be decided by John Rosmer – a man torn between the idealised hope of the future and the ghosts of his past.

Rosmersholm is a twisting thriller and stars Tom Burke (Strike, The Musketeers) as the soulful Rosmer. Hayley Atwell (Howards End, Captain America) is Rebecca West, one of Ibsen’s greatest heroines. Enigmatic and unpredictable, free-spirited Rebecca brings the winds of change to Rosmersholm with the force of a hurricane.

Rosmersholm is produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, with Brenda Leff, Colin Callender, John Gore, 1001 Nights Productions, Burnt Umber Productions, Bradford W. Edgerton Living Trust and Tulchin Bartner Productions.
