Dominic Cooper returns to the stage in The Libertine

Dominic Cooper returns to the stage as the Earl of Rochester, in Terry Johnson's adaptation of the Stephen Jeffreys play.

The Libertine tells the true story of John Wilmot, the second Earl of Rochester – a charismatic poet, playwright and rake with a legendary appetite for excess.

Full of flair and wit, this brilliant play is both a wild period piece and an incisive critique of life in an age of excess.
