The Rose Playhouse is a performance space by the site of an original Elizabethan theatre built in 1587. It presents a Shakespeare focused programme.

The site was re-opened in 1999, after the foundations of the original theatre were discovered in preparation for a new development, which was then halted. There are plans to continue to excavate a further part of the site.

Highlights from a recent online review:

“Peter Darney's direction is fresh, inventive and enjoyable”

“With an excellent cast, Arden of Faversham amuses and moves us. Its plot, brilliantly combining comedy and drama”

“All members of the cast deliver excellent performances, full of energy and temperament”

“The brilliant Dan Gingell and Simon Pennicott, who highlight the comic aspect of this play with slapstick gags and a clever interaction with the audience”
