Tom Stoppard’s “Rough Crossing” Is a Backstage Farce Set on a Third-Rate, Shabby Ocean Liner

“I love the text of ‘Rough Crossing’!” says director Julya M. Mirro. “I think that Tom Stoppard … has a wonderful sense of language and timing. In this show, he has a lot of great jokes that are all about the rhythm and pace of the speech. I also really appreciated that it is family-friendly, and evokes the sense of the great Katharine Hepburn/Jimmy Stewart/Cary Grant movies, with lots of playfulness!”
