performed in the year 1983
If you visit London, you might try to see a play by Tom Stoppard (not his newest, though: "Utopia" tries to be philosophical, but fails tragically!) or Alan Ayckbourne. Mostly they're both brilliantly funny and cleverly thoughtful at the same time. The above excerpt is from "After Magritte", a play in which everything seems quite absurd at first, but where each detail will be explained as the play develops. It probably is my favourite theatre play.
