Four-time Tony Award-winning playwright Tom Stoppard will participate in an in-depth discussion of his new play, Rock 'N' Roll, with the Wilma's co-Artistic Director, Blanka Zizka on Saturday, March 8 at 4:30 p.m.

Rock 'N' Roll 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.

The Broadway production of Rock 'N' Roll will close on March 9. The Wilma will present the Philadelphia premiere of the play as part of its upcoming 2008/2009 30th Anniversary Season.
