Beatrice is currently playing the multi role: Mary/Elizabeth/Mrs Smith and Henrietta in Bryony J Thompson’s adaptation of Persuasion at The Rosemary Branch Theatre and Brockley Jack studio to much critical acclaim (please see reviews).
Other recent roles include Bianca and Gremio in Taming of the Shrew for Red Rose Chain’s Theatre in The Forest on Jimmy’s Farm, The Beau Defeated and The School For Arrogance (Restoring the repertoire) Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds, a wonderful turn as maid-come-Queen in David Spicer’s new comedy Long Live the Mad Parade at Trafalgar studios and The Ashcroft Theatre, Fairfield Halls where she returned to play Mina Westerman in Liz Lockhead’s adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
Beatrice has toured extensively in both the UK and abroad and is equally comfortable with classical text and modern drama. Beatrice has a sharp wit and excellent comic timing; a strong physical performer Beatrice partook in a residency with Complicite and has studied clowning with Mick Barnfather.
Beatrice is a marathon runner, artist, yogi and children’s yoga and drama teacher and is currently training to become a Natal Hypnotherapist having used it for the birth of her son.
Persuasion – The Rosemary Branch Theatre and Brockley Jack Studio
Beatrice Rose drew the most laughs from the audience with her natural comedic flair
Beatrice Rose who puts in the best performance of the night
A particular favourite for me was Beatrice Rose who had 4 similar characters to play in this production. The younger sister of the protagonist, Mary Elliot was shrill and irritating in the most charming of ways and her Mrs Smith was understated and caring. She did a marvellous job of defining her multiple characters and playing them with oodles of truth and energy.
Elegantly attired in their cream and grey livery, the nimble cast of six employ only adjustments in voice and body language to portray over 20 characters and all master Austen’s language with the utmost fluency
The Stage ★★★★
Long Live The Mad Parade – Ashcroft Theatre
The endearing Beatrice Rose was probably the star of the show, with her comical lines delivered superbly in a variety of accents.
She starts out as a housemaid, but when she changes into someone else on stage, it is just an opportunity to show off what other fine lines she has.
The Little Mermaid – Proteus Theatre, UK tour
Rose gives an enchanting performance as the Little Mermaid, with wide eyed optimism and youthful naivety.
…our titular heroine, the sweet and stunning Beatrice Rose…
