About the Author

Tom Stoppard was born in Czechoslovakia in 1937 and moved to England with his family in 1946. Catapulted into the front ranks of modern playwrights overnight when Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead opened in London in 1967, he has become recognized as a contemporary comic master, the brilliantly acclaimed author of The Real Inspector Hound, Enter a Free Man, Albert's Bridge, After Magritte, Travesties, Dirty Linen, Jumpers, New-Found-Land, Night and Day, The Real Thing, Hapgood, Artist Descending a Staircase, Every Good Boy Deserves Favor, Arcadia, The Invention of Love, The Coast of Utopia (Voyage, Shipwreck, and Salvage), and Rock 'n' Roll. He has also written a number of screenplays, including The Romantic Englishwoman, Despair, and Brazil.


"Tom Stoppard has written one of the great political plays in the English language. . . . It has a moving, throat-catching intensity. . . . This play shows him at his combative and tolerant best." -- John Peter
"Stoppard's exciting new play of immutable passions and mutable politics, Rock 'N' Roll . . . is so flush with feeling that it never seems to stop trembling. . . . Stoppard locates the very rhythm of life. . . . ÝHis¨ most emotionally generous play." -- Ben Brantley
"Astonishing . . . There is an energy, rawness, and passion here one doesn't associate with the elegant and witty Stoppard, passages of unbuttoned emotion that go straight to the heart. . . . This new piece smells, well, of sex and drugs and Rock 'N' Roll." -- Charles Spencer
