Avers, Kunken, Mare, et al. to Join Cast of Rock 'n' Roll logo
Stephen Kunken
Brian Avers, Mary Bacon, Seth Fisher, Stephen Kunken, Quentin Mare, Ken Marks, and Alexandra Neil will join the previously announced Brian Cox, Sinead Cusack, Rufus Sewell, Nicole Ansari, and Alice Eve in Tom Stoppard's Rock 'n' Roll. The production, to be directed by Trevor Nunn, will begin performances at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on October 19 with an opening set for November 4.

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).
