Rock 'n' Roll

Invite

May 2 – June 7, 2009 In the Albert
Approximate running time: 2 hours and 40 minutes

It's August 1968, and Russian tanks are rolling into Prague... Jan, the Czech student, lives for rock music; Max, the English professor, lives for Communism; and Esme, the flower child, is high. By 1990, the tanks are rolling out, the Stones are rolling in and idealism has hit the wall. Stoppard's sweeping and passionate play spans two countries, three generations and 22 turbulent years, at the end of which, love remainsand so does Rock ’n’ Roll.
