Rock ‘n’ Roll spans the years from 1968 to 1990 from the double perspective of Prague, where a rock'n'roll band comes to symbolise resistance to the Communist regime, and of Cambridge where the verities of love and death are shaping the lives of three generations in the family of a Marxist philosopher.
Rock ‘n’ Roll is at the Royal Court Theatre from 3 July to 15 July - before it transfers to the West End's Duke of York's Theatre.
