The Real Inspector Hound and After Magritte

Two Plays

Book - 1975
Rate this:
In these two plays, Tom Stoppard, the author of the memorable success Rosencratz and Guildenstern Are Dead, scored another hit on both the London and the New York stage, where he is now acknowledged as one of the greatest living dramatists in the English language. The first of the plays, The Real Inspector Hound, is the longer of the two; here the author has created a looking glass comedy of great suspense and intrigue about two drama critics. The second play, After Magritte, is 'a surrealist comedy in detective form-or is it a comedy in surrealist form? A husband and wife argue whether the figure they saw in the street was a one-legged football player with the ball under his arm, or a man in pajamas with a tortoise under his arm. The play shows that Stoppard is as amusing and clever as always.'
