Ticketmaster Summer in Stages

Rose, by Martin Sherman and starring Dame Maureen Lipman, is live on stage at Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester and Park Theatre in London in August–October this year.

Following an award-winning online run, later broadcast on Sky Arts, Lipman returns to the title role.

From a tiny Ukrainian village, through the Warsaw ghettos to the boardwalks of Atlantic City, the play is a reminder of some of the harrowing events of the 20th century through a Jewish woman’s eyes. Blending personal with political, Rose traces one woman’s story from the devastation of Nazi-ruled Europe to conquering the American dream.

It’s at Hope Mill Theatre August 30 to September 11 and at Park Theatre September 13 to October 15.
