Lena Kaur: The Rover Press Night (RSC)

Date - 15 September, 2016, All News Opening Nights Press Nights Theatre

It’s Press Night of The RSC’s production of The Rover tonight at the Swan Theatre in Stratford-Upon-Avon, with Lena Kaur as Adriana.

Passion. Heat. Sex…

Amid the fast and furious world of the South American carnival, three wandering cavaliers roam in exile whilst three women looking for love and fighting for a little freedom explore this vibrant, frenzied, dizzying world.

Aphra Behn was England’s first female professional playwright and a strong voice in early feminism. Loveday Ingram (The Merchant of Venice, 2001) returns to direct this masterpiece of Restoration comedy – a fusion of sights and sounds, whirling music, cultural tension, dubious romance and dilapidated beauty – joining forces with Olivier and Tony Award-winning designer Lez Brotherston.


Lena Kaur is best known for her role as Leila Roy in Hollyoaks and was part of the original cast of the BBC3 comedy Scallywagga which she also co wrote. Other notable screen credits include Justin's House for BBC TV, Dr Alicia Patel in the fourth series of Torchwood and Maya in Tiger Aspect's Prisoners' Wives, Dani's Castle for CBBC, and Happy Valley for BBC One.

Lena's theatre credits include Earthworks and Myth for the Royal Shakespeare Company, Treasure Island for National Theatre, the 'Curtain Call Award' winning Thursday for ETT, Sisters at Sheffield Theatres, the title role in Rubina for the Birmingham Rep and The Sky's The Limit at The Old Vic.

She will play the role of Mary in Maxine Peake's new play The Last Ballad of Lillian Bilocca produced by Hull Truck.
