Illinois State University’s School of Theatre will present the Tom Stoppard play Rock ‘n’ Roll on March 31, April 1, 2, 6, 7, 8, 9, at 7:30 p.m. and on April 3, at 2 pm in the University’s Center for the Performing Arts Theatre. Tickets are $17 for adults and Illinois State faculty/staff and $12 for students/ seniors and may be purchased at the Center for the Performing Arts Ticket Office.

Rock ‘n’ Roll takes place over several decades (late 1960’s to 1990) and contrasts the attitudes of a young Czechoslovakian Ph.D student and rock music fan who becomes appalled by the repressive regime in his home country with those of his British Marxist professor who unrepentantly continues to believe in the Soviet ideal.
