WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

"A celebration of the pagan spirit embodied by rock 'n' roll."--The Guardian This extraordinary theatrical event, from four-time Tony Award winner Tom Stoppard (The Coast Of Utopia), makes its South Bay debut in a uniquely intimate production at The Stage. It's August 1968, and Russian tanks are rolling in to Prague. Jan, a 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 remains -- and so does rock 'n' roll.
