The Libertine

The Libertine Tickets

Dominic Cooper returns to the stage to play the notorious Earl of Rochester in this major revival of The Libertine, directed by Terry Johnson.

Full of flair and wit, this brilliant play is both a wild period piece and an incisive critique of life in an age of excess. The production will premiere at the Theatre Royal Bath before transferring to the West End for a strictly limited season.

The Libertine was first performed on tour and at the Royal Court Theatre alongside the Restoration comedy, The Man of Mode, which presented another, contemporary view of Rochester. It later transferred to Chicago's Steppenwolf starring John Malkovich and directed by Terry Johnson before Johnny Depp took the title role in the 2004 film adaptation.

About The Libertine:

John Wilmot, the second Earl of Rochester is a charismatic poet, playwright and rake with a legendary appetite for excess. Yet this most ardent of hedonists is forced to reconsider everything he thinks and feels when a chance encounter with an actress at the Playhouse sends him reeling. With flair and wit, this wild romp through 1670s London offers an incisive critique of life in an age of excess.

Our Review

Having recently housed a dismal stage version of Breakfast at Tiffany's, best known for the 1961 film based on Truman Capote's story, and previously been the home to a stage version of When Harry Met Sally, the grand old Theatre Royal Haymarket could be turning into a staging post for titles that have played at the Cineworld opposite.
