‘Miss Rose White’ is set in 1940s New York and a tale of the relationship between two sisters. Rose White is a Jewish woman who changes her name to appear far removed from her Polish heritage. She longs to climb the ladder of success in the large department store where she works. Years ago, her mother and sister had to remain in Poland and were subsequently sent to concentration camps. Good news arrives. The sister is alive and, at last, coming to America. When she enters the country, she is much changed. Rose is forced to share her apartment with a virtual stranger. In time, they slowly warm to each other in this, moving production produced by Austin O’Flynn.
The cast includes Niamh Ryan, Jimmy O’Sullivan, Ann Walsh, Colm McGrath, Geraldine McCarthy and Maeve Moclair.
