Call 800-427-6160 for tickets. Starting off Cortland Repertory Theatre’s summer season from June 6 – 16, CRT presents ROUGH CROSSING, a shipboard farce by master playwright Tom Stoppard, who “freely adapted” Ferenc Molnar’s Play At The Castle. All is not smooth sailing in this hilarious shipboard farce! In the suites of the luxury liner The Italian Castle, the playwrights of a soon-to-open hit Broadway comedy are simultaneously trying to write AND rehearse the play while crossing the Atlantic. The play doesn’t even have an ending…the beginning needs work…and, actually, the middle is a mess. Meanwhile, the stuttering composer is madly in love with the leading lady, who may or may not be flirting with the (much older) leading man. Toss in a not-so-helpful cabin steward who can only seem to walk straight when seas are rough (and visa versa), and the laughs overflow in this high seas mis-adventure. The Boston Globe calls it “an absurd, joyous ride!”
