Following its hit production of MACHINAL, Greenhouse Theater Center is pleased to continue its 2017-18 season with the return of Laurence Leamer's critically acclaimed drama ROSE. Recently honored with a 2017 Equity Joseph Jefferson Award for Best Solo Performance, celebrated Chicago actress Linda Reiter reprises her role as matriarch Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy in this intimate piece directed by Steve Scott. ROSE will play January 12 – March 11, 2018 at the Greenhouse Theater Center (Downstairs Main Stage), 2257 N. Lincoln Ave. in Chicago. Tickets are currently available at greenhousetheater.org, in person at the box office or by calling (773) 404-7336.

An intimate portrait of Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, Camelot’s “queen mother,” as she retraces the rise and fall of her great family. A break-out hit during the 2016 Solo Celebration! Series following its successful Off-Broadway run, ROSE is based on never-before-heard interviews compiled by distinguished Kennedy biographer Laurence Leamer. 
 
“A lot has transpired in our nation’s political landscape since the first time that we mounted Rose, as part of last year’s Solo Celebration! Series,” comments Artistic Director Jacob Harvey. “The story of Rose Kennedy and her remarkable family has taken on a new resonance, assuring audiences that although our nation can face moments of turmoil and uncertainty, we have the ability to build a brighter future by exploring and understanding our collective past.”
 
The production team for ROSE includes: Kevin Hagan (scenic design), Rachel Lambert (costume design), Cat Wilson (lighting design) and Christopher Kriz (sound design) and Kasey Trouba (stage manager).
