Dear Friends of The English Theatre of Hamburg,

In ROSE’S DILEMMA you will see three newcomers on our stage – Victoria Lennox, Laura Murray, and Tom Rooke. We wish to extend a warm welcome to each of them and to Stephen von Schreiber, whom you saw last season in our production of QUARTET by Ronald Harwood.   

You can soon subscribe to our coming 35th Anniversary Season and, as usual, see four plays for the price of three. We have planned an exciting and varied season for you. The plays we will be producing are:

THE FOX, a play by Allan Miller, from the novella by D.H. Lawrence
FUNNY ABOUT LOVE, a comedy by Terence Frisby
THE COMEDY OF ERRORS, a farce by William Shakespeare
MOON OVER THE BREWERY, a play by Bruce Graham
(Plays are subject to change.)

Photos from scenes in Neil Simon's ROSE'S DILEMMA

Rose (Victoria Lennox) sees the ghost of Walsh (Stephen von Schreiber), the love of her life, who died five years ago. Whether she really sees him or not is for the audience to decide. Because Rose needs money, Walsh helps her find an unfinished novel of his and urges her to pay a young writer to help complete it.
With the help of Arlene, her assistant (Laura Murray), Rose finds a young man, Gavin Clancy (Tom Rooke), to help with the novel, but she is not sure he is good enough to do Walsh's book justice. And she is uncomfortable with the idea of making money by profiting from a work that is not 100% by Walsh.
Tom and Laura fall in love and Tom discovers an interesting secret about his new love.
Clancy tries to finish Walsh's book, but feels he cannot write as well as the famous writer. Instead he writes a book about the love affair between Rose and Walsh that continues, in a ghostly fashion, even though Walsh died five years ago. He gives it to Arlene who asks Rose if she has any objections to the book. A publishing company wants to pay Clancy a lot of money for his book and he agrees to split his earnings with Rose. There are more ups and downs in the play, but we don't want to spoil the end for you. Come and see for yourselves how the lives of these four people work out.
