The Seven Pomegranate Seeds

The Seven Pomegranate Seeds

Seven contemporary stories grounded in prominent, mythical origins


From the director of My Brilliant Friend (National Theatre transfer, 2019) and Captain Corelli’s Mandolin (West End transfer, 2019) comes the world premiere of Colin Teevan’s The Seven Pomegranate Seeds.

Persephone, Hypsipyle, Medea, Alcestis, Phaedra, Creusa and Demeter: the women of Euripides' plays are reimagined as people of today in an unexpected fusion of celebrity, inappropriate desires, historical police investigations and missing children.

A severed maternal bond threads each story together, charting a journey through rage and redemption, towards a compelling conclusion.

Rose Associate Artist, Melly Still, returns to the Rose to direct and design Colin Teevan’s haunting monologue cycle in this unflinching, witty production. Starring Rose Associate Artist Niamh Cusack (My Brilliant Friend) and Shannon Hayes (Ted Lasso Series 1 & 2, Apple TV).

Age Recommendation: 14+
