ROSE THEATRE IN KINGSTON SHOWCASES EXCELLENT PRODUCTIONS

WORDS BY DIVYA SEHGAL

When I was living in Epsom, Surrey years ago, the closest space to watch adaptations of plays by Chekhov, Ibsen, and Shakespeare was the Rose Theatre in Kingston. The largest producing theatre in South West London, it is modelled after the Bankside theatre with the same name. The theatre, home to the students of Kingston University and, no doubt many volunteer as ushers and office staff, is a haven for theatre lovers in the area.

Like many theatres in London, the Rose has special discounts for students, including an under-26 years’ pass. Full price tickets are also significantly cheaper than at other theatres. But make no mistake, the sheer quality of the productions make it a formidable competitor to theatres in Central London. Might I suggest My Brilliant Friend, a theatre adaptation of Elena Ferrante’s fantastic four-part book series? If travelling from miles away, why not make a trip of it? Kingston might be written off as a student town, but it has so much more to offer!
