The Woods Hole Theater Company and the Museums on the Green are pleased to present the one-woman play “Rose” by Laurence Leamer. The play features Linda Monchik as Rose Kennedy and is directed by Joan Edstrom. This is the first cooperative venture between the two organizations and is done in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of President John F. Kennedy.

The scene is the Kennedy home in Hyannisport, where the matriarch of America’s First Family is granting an interview to a Mr. Coughlan. We see this mother of perhaps the favorite son of Massachusetts, discussing her marriage and family, and among other things, the tragic events surrounding Ted Kennedy’s accident at Chappaquiddick.

“Rose” is a remarkable portrait of a woman who played the hand she was dealt without ever looking back.’–LightingandSoundAmerica.com
