Emma Fielding and Dominic West have joined the cast of Tom Stoppard’s critically acclaimed new play, Rock'n'Roll, as further performances are announced for Trevor Nunn’s sell-out production. Produced in the West End by Sonia Friedman, Tom Stoppard’s new play Rock ‘n’ Roll - which recouped in just eight weeks - continues to break all box office records at the Duke of York’s Theatre, playing to packed houses in the West End.
Rock ‘n’ Roll received its world premiere at the Royal Court earlier this year, where it was a sell out success, and subsequently transferred to the Duke of York’s Theatre. Further performances were announced in August, and as discussions continue for the Broadway production, due to exceptional public demand the Producers of Rock ‘n’ Roll announce a further 15 weeks, now booking until Sunday 25th February 2007.
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.
The cast includes Dolya Gavanski (Lenka), Martin Chamberlain (Milan), David Calder (Max), Emma Fielding (Eleanor/older Esme), Dominic West (Jan) and Peter Sullivan (Ferdinand).
