Head to the Duke of York's theatre for a classic Ibsen play that's about to enjoy an eagerly-anticipated resurgence in the West End. Welcome to Rosmersholm, a four act masterpiece by Henrik Ibsen, written in 1886 and performed for the first time a year later. It's about the ex-parson Johannes Rosmer, a man with painfully high ethical standards, and his rebellious housekeeper, the vibrant Rebecca West. But there's also a wider context, that of an important election whose results could change the old traditions forever.

Both characters are haunted by Rosmer’s late wife, Beata, who committed suicide thanks to her husband’s cold, intellectual indifference to sex and to Rebecca's subtle machinations. Will the post-election future be brave, unrestricted and free, or will the old ways prevail? Tom Burke plays the lead role of John Rosmer and Hayley Atwell plays Rebecca West. This is the tenth collaboration between Sonia Friedman Productions and the director Ian Rickson. Duncan Macmillan directs, an award-winning writer and director whose plays include People Places and Things, Lungs, and Every Brilliant Thing. It's an all-time classic you'll love – so buy tickets as soon as they become available!
