Rosmersholm

‘Now I see that love is selfish. It makes you a country of two. At war with the rest of the world.’

An election looming. A country on the brink. A rabid press baying for blood. At the centre of the storm is Rosmersholm, the grand house of an influential dynasty. This is where the future will be decided by John Rosmer – a man torn between the idealised hope of the future and the ghosts of his past.

Direct from a sold-out season at Kiln Theatre the five star, hit play, The Son, transfers to the Duke of York’s theatre for ten weeks only from 24 August.
 
Written by the internationally acclaimed Florian Zeller, lauded by The Guardian as ‘the most exciting playwright of our time’, The Son is directed by the award-winning Michael Longhurst and forms the final part of the critically acclaimed trilogy with The Father and The Mother.
 
I’m telling you. I don’t understand what’s happening to me.
 
Nicolas is going through a difficult phase after his parents’ divorce. He’s listless, skipping school, lying and thinks that moving in with his father and his new family may help. A fresh start. When he doesn’t settle there either, he decides that going back to his mother’s may be the answer. When change feels like the only way to survive, what will he do when the options begin to run out?

The theatre was originally called The Trafalgar Square Theatre, being just 100 yards from Trafalgar Square. The name was shortened to The Trafalgar Theatre in 1894 before being changed completely to The Duke of York's Theatre in 1895. During the late 1990's the name was temporarily changed to The Royal Court Theatre Downstairs before reverting back The Duke of York's Theatre. Originally seating 900 on four levels, the top level (the balcony) has now been closed with the seating capacity reduced to the current 640.

Although the theatre under went refurbishment in 1979 when structural alterations were made to remove some of the columns supporting the circle, a number of seats still suffer from a restricted view of the stage.

Productions staged here include a successful run of Richard Harris's play "Stepping Out" which run for just under 3 years while Willy Russell's "Shirley Valentine" enjoyed a run of over 2 years here. Between October 1995 and March 1996 the Royal Court presented Ron Hutchinson's "Rat in the Skull", Terry Johnson's "Hysteria" and David Storey's "The Changing Room" as part of a 'Royal Court Classics' season. This was then followed by a revival of the Andrew Lloyd Webber/Alan Ayckbourn musical, "By Jeeves", a musical which had originally been seen in 1975 but which had now been virtually rewritten - it opened on 2 July 1996 and closed on 28 September 1996 when it transferred to the Lyric Theatre. After this the Theatre was taken over by The Royal Court Theatre for the next four years, before in August 2000 the comedy hit "Stones in his Pockets" transferred here from the New Ambassadors Theatre.
