Rose Theatre Kingston

The Rose Theatre, Kingston Upon Thames

The Rose Theatre opened in January 2008 to great acclaim and has hosted many successful visiting productions, as well as its very first home grown production, Love's Labour's Lost directed by Peter Hall. A Christmas Carol, directed by Stephen Unwin was the Rose's first Christmas show.

"The theatre, which has been doggedly championed by Sir Peter Hall, is a palpable hit." The Daily Telegraph

The Rose takes its inspiration from the Elizabethan theatre of the same name, in which several of Shakespeare's early plays were premiered.

The great circle of the Rose's auditorium provides the template for everything we do: all embracing, accessible, warm-hearted, popular, intelligent and stylish. Productions of scenic simplicity and human scale embrace the particular features of the Rose's exceptional stage and are characterised by an uncompromising emphasis on the value of language and the spoken word.
