Rose Theatre and Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse Theatres today announce a new production of William Shakespeare’s Richard III.
Following her critically acclaimed production of Richard II at Shakespeare’s Globe, Adjoa Andoh (Lady Danbury in Bridgerton) returns to the stage to direct and star as Shakespeare’s iconic antihero, Richard III.
Richard III opens at Liverpool Playhouse on 11 April with previews from 6 April 2023 and plays at Rose Theatre from 26 April – 13 May 2023.
2023 at the Rose continues with a contemporary staging of Lord of the Flies (18 – 22 April 2023), adapted by Nigel Williams from the novel from William Golding, will be directed by Amy Leach.
Lord of the Flies is a Leeds Playhouse and Belgrade Coventry co-production in association with Rose Theatre.
Lord of the Flies made an immediate impact when it was first published as a novel in 1954 by Nobel Prize-winning British author William Golding. Almost 70 years later, its searing iconoclastic gaze remains intact, giving us the chance to reflect anew on modern society.
Award-winning writer Evan Placey adapts J.M. Barrie’s children’s classic Peter Pan (1 December 2023 – 7 January 2024) in a brand-new version directed by Lucy Morrell (Beauty and the Beast). Packed with song, dance, magic and featuring members of our talented Rose Youth Theatre, we promise to have you hooked.
Priority booking is now available for Richard III, Lord of the Flies, and Peter Pan, with general booking open from Monday 5 December 2022.
