Description

Pop culture and politics collide in this rapturous, decades-spanning tale about love, rock 'n' roll, revolution and the end of Communism.

Tom Stoppard, world-renowned for plays such as Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead and his Oscar-winning screenplay Shakespeare in Love, has created a feast of ideas that explores the culture of revolution and the people who fuel it with rare wit, empathy and electricity. The music of Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, The Stones and U2 signal the dawn of a new era in Czechoslovakia in 1968 when restrictions on free speech and travel are lifted, but when the USSR invades, the struggle for freedom is ignited once again...

In co-production with The Citadel Theatre in Edmonton
