Rock 'n' Roll by Tom Stoppard

Sunday 8 July 2007 20:00-22:30 (Radio 3)

Stoppard's new play about loyalty, compromise, love and music is given its first radio production as part of BBC Radio's celebration of his work.

In 1968, Czech student Jan returns home 'to protect rock 'n' roll' from the Soviet tanks crushing the Prague Spring. Max, a Communist don in Cambridge, watches his ideology collapse until the Velvet revolution of 1990 allows student and master to meet again. The politics and music have changed, but have the people?
