Ibsen's lesser-known work Rosmersholm continues to light up the West End thanks to stunning performances from Hayley Atwell, Tom Burke and Giles Terera. A story about politics and ideology, Rosmersholm is set on the eve of an election, as individuals and parties vie for the favour of Pastor John Rosmer. But Rosmer is fighting his own battles: grieving the loss of his wife and grappling with his wavering faith. Featuring one of the Scandinavian playwright's most spirited female characters, Rebecca West, Rosmersholm is remarkably pertinent in today's political climate. It plays at the Duke of York's Theatre until 20 July.

The Girl On The Train

After gripping audiences on a UK tour, The Girl On The Train arrives at the Duke of York’s Theatre for a short but thrilling string of performances. Based on Paula Hawkins’ chart-topping thriller and fresh off the back of the film, the play follows Rachel, a woman who’s daily voyeurism from the train casts her as a witness and potential suspect in the disappearance of a young woman. Starring EastEnders’ Samantha Womack, get your detective cap on and settle in for an evening of twists and surprises when The Girl On The Train plays a four-week run from July.
