Overview

I'm eighty years old. I find that unforgivable and suddenly it's a millennium and I stink of the past century, but what can I do?



Rose is a survivor. Her remarkable life began in a tiny Russian village, took her to Warsaw's ghettos and a ship called The Exodus, and finally to the boardwalks of Atlantic City, the Arizona canyons and salsa-flavoured nights in Miami beach.

The play is both a sharply drawn portrait of a feisty Jewish woman and a moving reminder of some of the events that shaped the century.

Rose, written by the celebrated author of Bent, premiered in May 1999 at the Royal National Theatre London.
