Utah's Pioneer Theatre Company will present Tom Stoppard's sea-faring comedy, Rough Crossing, March 17-April 3. Rough Crossing takes place on a cruise ship as two playwrights, a cast and a nosy waiter create theatre on the high seas. Other plays by Stoppard include Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, Indian Ink, The Real Thing and Arcadia. He also co-authored the film "Shakespeare in Love."
John Going directs a cast of Pioneer favorites: Max Robinson, Ann Kittredge, Michael John McGann, Timothy Nolen, Robert J. Hamilton, and David Staller.
Set design is by James Wolk, with costumes by K.L. Alberts, lights by Linda Essig, with choreography by Jayne Luke.
