Peter Hall, founder of the Royal Shakespeare Company, is the artistic heart behind relative newcomer Rose Theatre in Kingston. Opened in 2008, the 900-seat modern theatre welcomes touring companies as well as staging home grown productions from Alan Ayckbourn's ‘Bedroom Farce’ to ‘A Midsummer Night's Dream’ starring Judi Dench. Its programme reaches out to the local community with a populist mix of comedy, music and events as well as theatre aimed at children (‘Room on the Broom) and teenagers (Richard Milward’s ‘Apples’).
