About this show

Set in the 1930s on an ocean liner saling across the Atlantic, Stoppard's Rough Crossing is a hilarious adaptation of Ferenc Molnar's Play at the Castle. It tells the story of a musical-comedy writing team and their young, speech-impaired composer, who are on deadline to complete their new piece during their four-day crossing. Their cast - a haughty leading lady and her vain leading man, along with a peripatetic ship steward - aren't helping matters, and it's questionable whether the "show will go on" as they rehearse amid mishaps and misunderstandings - and very stormy seas!
