We are delighted to announce that multi-award winning stage and screen star Vanessa Redgrave comes to the Rose stage for three work in progress performances of her new play, Vienna 1934 - Munich 1938from Thu 7 - Sat 9 Feb. For more details click here.

In the late 1930s the famous actor Michael Redgrave became close friends with the celebrated poet Stephen Spender. Through their families’ notebooks, journals and memoirs, and Stephen's poems, Vanessa Redgrave discovers the love affairs that they remembered, and the hopes and fears of the generation that confronted the fascist seizing of power in Europe. Among these was the German writer Thomas Mann.

Written and devised by Michael’s daughter Vanessa, the play highlights the affectionate and intimate thoughts of individuals during these years of political and social disaster.
