Dominic Cooper makes his West End debut as the most notorious rogue in Restoration England, the Earl of Rochester, in this thrilling new production of The Libertine.
Based on true events, Stephen Jeffreys’ sharply written, comic play tells the story of the charismatic poet and playwright with a legendary appetite for excess. A close friend of King Charles II, Rochester’s life of debauchery knows no bounds until headstrong actress Elizabeth Barry (Ophelia Lovibond) makes an appearance at the Playhouse. Could she finally be the one to tame him?
Multi-award winner Terry Johnson directs an acclaimed cast, including Jasper Britton and Mark Hadfield, for a strictly limited 10 week season from 22 September at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.
