Both charming and disturbing, The Suit combines a rich musical score with remarkably simple staging as it tells the story of a husband who doles out an unusual punishment to his cheating wife: He asks that she treat her lover's abandoned suit as a guest of honor in their home. Accompanying her wherever she goes, the suit becomes a whimsical yet cruel reminder of her infidelity. African melodies interweave with jazz standards to underscore this surprising, sharp-witted tale set in Apartheid-era Johannesburg, in a haunting production that integrates virtuosic musicians directly into the action.

“A.C.T.‘s Rock rolls in Stoppard’s genius. Heartbreaking. Extraordinary!” -San Francisco Examiner

“One of Stoppard’s most personal and teasingly passionate plays.” —San Francisco Chronicle
A rapturous, decades-spanning tale of Prague’s rock revolution, Tom Stoppard’s Rock ‘n’ Roll follows the passions and politics of a Marxist professor in Cambridge and his Rolling Stones–obsessed protégé fighting for freedom in Soviet-dominated Prague. Nominated for four 2008 Tony Awards, Rock ‘n’ Roll pulsates to the beat of the Stones, Pink Floyd, and Syd Barrett, Floyd’s disturbed genius, whose reclusive life becomes a haunting motif of the play.
