"Arcadia""I have never left a new play more convinced that I'd just witnessed a masterpiece."--"Daily Telegraph""This is a brilliant, brilliant play. A play of ideas, of consummate theatricality, of sophisticated entertainment and of heartache for time never to be regained."--"Sunday Times""The Real Thing""In "The Real Thing" he [Stoppard] combines some fly Pirandellian games with an unequivocal statement about the joyousness of shared passion. And the result is the rare thing in the West End (or anywhere else for that matter): an intelligent play about love."--"Guardian""Night & Day; ""How excellent it is to leave a theatre thinking as this play makes you think."--"Financial Times""Hapgood """Hapgood" is a new variation on one of Stoppard's abiding themes: the black romance of reality and appearance. This is a metaphysical spy-thriller, intricate, elegant, and lucid...for sheer intellectual excitement, "Hapgood "has no rival."--"Sunday Times""Tom Stoppard's most cunning play--a dazzling, double game of physics and espionage--remarkable."--"Guardian"
