The Libertine

The Libertine

At Theatre Royal Haymarket

Price from € 21.70

Dominic Cooper returns to the stage to play the notorious Earl of Rochester in this major revival of The Libertine, directed by Terry Johnson.

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.
