Last week, Duncan Macmillan’s adaptation of Henrick Ibsen’s political drama, Rosmersholm, opened at the Duke Of York’s Theatre and we’ve got a sneak peek at this eagerly anticipated production.

The Ibsen masterpiece stars TV and theatre regular Tom Burke as John Rosmer, Marvel’s Hayley Atwell as Rebecca West, and Olivier Award-winner Giles Terera as Andreas Kroll.

Originally written in 1886, Rosmersholm follows the former clergyman and heir to an influential dynasty, John Rosmer. While his country is in political turmoil, John hides in Rosmersholm – his family’s grand manor. At his lowest, following the suicide of his wife, John confides in his childhood friend and infatuation, the free-thinking Rebecca, but their relationship becomes problematic when John becomes torn between the hope of future prosperity and the lingering ghosts of his past.

Take a look at Johan Persson’s stunning production photos below.

Celebrated and Olivier Award-nominated writer and director Duncan Macmillan is famed for penning People, Places And Things and Every Brilliant Thing. He also co-adapted and co-directed 1984 with Robert Icke.

Tom Burke is best known for his TV roles in Strike and The Musketeers, however, he is no stranger to the stage. His most recent performances include The Deep Blue Sea at the National Theatre and Reasons To Be Happy at the Hampstead Theatre.

Hayley Atwell found worldwide fame when she took the role of Agent Carter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Like Tom, she’s also known for her theatrical work and recently appeared in Measure For Measure at the Donmar Warehouse.

Giles Terera shot to fame when he played the role of Aaron Burr in the original West End cast of Hamilton which earned him an Olivier Award.

The cast also includes Lucy Briers (Wolf Hall) as Mrs Helseth, Jake Fairbrother (Lady From The Sea) as Peter Mortensgaard, and Peter Wight (The Birthday Party) as Ulrik Brendel.
