ROCK 'N' ROLL is an electrifying collision of the romantic and the revolutionary. It’s 1968 and the world is ablaze with rebellion, accompanied by a sound track of the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and Pink Floyd. Clutching his prized collection of rock albums, Jan, a Cambridge graduate student, returns to his homeland of Czechoslovakia just as Soviet tanks roll into Prague. When security forces tighten their grip on artistic expression, Jan is inexorably drawn toward a dangerous act of dissent. Over the next twenty years of love, espionage, chance, and loss, the extraordinary lives of Stoppard’s characters spin and intersect until an unexpected reunion forces them to see what is truly worth the fight.
