Avers, Kunken, Mare, et al. to Join Cast of Rock 'n' Roll
The play spans the years 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.
Cox, Cusack, Sewell, Eve, and Ansari will repeat the roles they originated during Rock 'n' Roll's world premiere at the Royal Court, which subsequently transferred to the Duke of York's Theatre. The play won the London Evening Standard and London Critics' Circle Theatre Awards for Best New Play.
The design team will include Robert Jones (set), Emma Ryott (costumes), Howard Harrison (lighting), and Ian Dickinson (sound).
