Reckless passion & intrigue at Bankside’s Rose Playhouse


“Shoulders rounded against the storm, he strides along the wind ripped shore, clothes snapping around him like the sails of a storm born ship. He searches, he shouts, but the sea has caught him out once again.”

An old man who lost his love to the sea, brings up his son to fear it, on an island of folk who have been blinded by the past.

Perception and reality blur and memories of lost love shape them all. When the unexpected washes up on their shore, time worn secrets begin to emerge.

Cast: Blake Kubena, Allison Tennant, Rebecca Rogers, Simon Rodda and Edward Bijl.

Rebecca Rogers’ Reckless is an epic story of outrageous love and forbidden joy, exploring the timeless matters of the heart.

Inspired by the great works of classical drama and using a mixture of theatrical styles, the drama explores fear, its power and the indescribable release when reckless love comes our way.

A spokesman for the Rose said: “Situated in the heart of Southwark, this historic theatre was hosting new, innovative work 400 years ago. We are proud to be continuing in this tradition”.

Heady Conduct Theatre is staging Reckless at the historic Rose Playhouse, Bankside in London from September 3-27.
