Theatre Royal Haymarket

The Libertine – performances from 22nd September

Presented by TRH Productions, Theatre Royal Bath Productions and Ilene Starger


Dominic Cooper returns to the stage to play the notorious Earl of Rochester in this major revival of The Libertine, directed by Terry Johnson. Set and Costume Design by Tim Shortall


Stephen Jeffreys’ play, later made into a film, tells the true story of John Wilmot, the second Earl of Rochester – a charismatic poet, playwright and rake with a legendary appetite for excess. 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 …

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.
