There's another chance to catch Dame Maureen Lipman in the digital revival of Martin Sherman's Rose which was filmed on-stage to an empty auditorium and directed by Scott Le Crass.

Due to overwhelming demand, the production will now get a further online run from 13 November to 13 December.

The show garnered a clutch of five star reviews for Dame Maureen's performance.

Blending the personal with the political, the play presents a sharply drawn portrait of a feisty Jewish woman tracing her story from the devastation of Nazi-ruled Europe to conquering the American dream.

Dame Maureen said ...

"Rose was the most exciting job I've ever had, and I am so glad we have an opportunity to share it with a wider audience.

I can't wait for it to be back on screen for the next four weeks so I can share that excitement with you."

Here's the trailer ...

Show listing information


Taking on the role made famous by Olympia Dukakis, Maureen Lipman is Rose, a woman shaped by her history.

She offers an intimate and, at times, humorous account of the 20th century, and the ultimate triumph of humanity.

This thought-provoking production acts as a caution, highlighting the importance of unity in the face of adversity, and the need to recognise and empathise with the suffering of others.

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 13 December 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.
