Event Details

Sir Gregory Doran, Artistic Director Emeritus of the Royal Shakespeare Company, will deliver the inaugural Annual Rose Playhouse Lecture. The Rose Playhouse and London South Bank University have partnered for this event.

The lecture, Titus Andronicus Revisited, will discuss the play, his production and the play’s relationship to The Rose. 

In 1593 and 1594, Henslowe’s account book recorded the first performances of Titus Andronicus. Then 400 years later Doran directed a seminal production of it at- the Market Theatre, Johannesburg, with his South Africa-born partner, Antony Sher, as Titus. Thirty years on, Doran will also look back at his production, its influence on a generation of theatre-makers and its reimagining for a modern political purpose.

The event will be held at the Student Centre at London South Bank University in Borough. The talk will also be streamed live on Zoom.  

The evening will help launch a major fundraising campaign for The Rose Revealed Project.
