About this show

The Rhode Island premiere of an extraordinary theatrical event from four-time Tony Award winner Tom Stoppard (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Travesties, The Real Thing, The Coast of Utopia). It's August 1968, and Russian tanks are rolling into Prague. Jan, a recently repatriated Czech student, lives for rock music. Max, a Cambridge professor and dyed-in-the-wool Marxist, lives for Communism. By 1990, revolution has taken hold, the tanks are rolling out and idealism is nowhere to be found. All that remains is love...and loud music. A sweeping drama spanning two countries and 22 turbulent years--punctuated by the soul-stirring sounds of legendary groups like the Stones, Pink Floyd and the Grateful Dead--Rock 'n' Roll is a complex, moving and electrifying exploration of society in the throes of transformation.
