ROSE, by best-selling author Laurence Leamer, will kick-off the inaugural 2017-18 South Florida Season from Forum Productions, in conjunction with the Greenhouse Theater Center NFP.

ROSE, presents an intimate portrait of Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, Camelot’s “queen mother,” as she retraces the rise and fall of her great family. Set in 1969 at the Kennedy’s Hyannis Port compound, one week after Teddy Kennedy’s infamous car accident on a bridge in Chappaquiddick, Mass, Rose reflects on her life and her family’s triumphs and tragedies.

The play is based on never-before-heard interviews conducted by Robert Coughlan, the ghostwriter of Rose Kennedy’s 1974 memoir, and compiled by distinguished Kennedy biographer and Palm Beach resident Laurence Leamer. A renowned Kennedy expert, Leamer has penned three best-selling tomes: “The Kennedy Women: The Saga of an American Family,” “The Kennedy Men” and “Sons of Camelot.”

ROSE is directed by revered Chicago director Steve Scott and stars Linda Reiter, a Chicago theater veteran who originated the role at The Greenhouse Theater and who’s currently nominated for a Jeff Award as best actress for her portrayal. Her numerous credits also include the television dramas Chicago Med (NBC), Chicago PD (NBC) and The Beast (A&E). Her voice can be heard in over 30 episodes of The Twilight Zone Radio Dramas (Falcon Picture Group) and she has received 13 Jeff Award nominations (Equity and non-Equity) and garnered six non-Equity Awards.
