The Libertine

Event location: Theatre Royal Haymarket. Ongoing event.

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.
