Description

This extraordinary theatrical event, nominated for four Tony Awards and three Drama Desk Awards, makes its South Bay Premiere in a uniquely intimate production at The Stage. It’s August 1968, and Russian tanks are rolling in to Prague. Jan, a Czech student, lives for rock music; Max, an English professor, lives for Communism; and Esme, the flower child, is high. By 1990, the tanks are rolling out, The Stones are rolling in and idealism has hit the wall. Stoppard’s sweeping and passionate play spans two countries, three generations and 22 turbulent years, at the end of which, love remains — and so does rock ’n’ roll.
