A new play by Tom Stoppard which spans the years from 1968-1990 from the double perspective of Prague, Czechoslovakia, where a rock 'n' roll band comes to symbolize resistance to the Communist regime – and of Cambridge, England, where the verities of love and death are shaping the lives of three generations in the family of a Marxist philosopher.

For The Record:

“Rock ’n’ Roll” had its World Premiere at the Royal Court in London in June 2006, and subsequently transferred to the Duke of York’s Theatre where it closed in Feb 2007.
