This production began performances on 22nd July 2006 and closed on 24th February 2007.
A radical triumph. Trevor Nunn's production is a masterpiece of lucidity, intelligence and feeling.
ROCK 'n' ROLL spans the years from 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.
Profound, moving and embarrassingly good.
Following its sold out run at the Royal Court, ROCK 'N' ROLL transfers to the Duke of York's Theatre.
Sonia Friedman Productions, Tulbart Productions and Michael Linnit for National Angels present The Royal Court Theatre production of “ROCK ‘N’ ROLL”.
The hottest ticket in town... so flush with feeling that it never seems to stop trembling.
