Rough Crossing and on the Razzle: Two Plays Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Based on a classic farce, Play at the Castle by Ferenc Molnar, Rough Crossing takes place on shipboard as two playwrights struggle to finish a musical comedy and rehearse it before docking in New York; in On the Razzle, adapted from Einen Jux will er sich machen by Johann Nestroy, two shop assistants live it up while dodging their employer in the restaurants and nightspots of Nestroy's nineteenth-century Vienna. Both words and action reveal Tom Stoppard as a master of comic technique.

Synopsis:

"Rough Crossing" takes place aboard ship as two playwrights struggle to finish a musical comedy, and "On the Razzle" follows two shop assistants as they dodge their employer in Nestroy's 19th century Vienna. Both of these plays were performed by the National Theatre.
