    In a large country house in Derbyshire in April 1809 sit Lady Thomasina Coverly, aged thirteen, and her tutor, Septimus Hodge. Through the window may be seen some of the '500 acres inclusive of lake' where Capability Brown's idealized landscape is about to give way to the 'picturesque' Gothic style: 'everything but vampires', as the garden historian Hannah Jarvis remarks to Bernard Nightingale when they stand in the same room 180 years later. Tom Stoppard's absorbing play takes one back and forth between the centuries and explores the nature of truth and time, the difference between Classical and Romantic temperaments, and the disruptive influence of sex! 112p.

    Leipzig, Germany - 1722. Johann Kuhnau, revered organist of the Thomaskirche, suddenly dies, leaving his post vacant. In an age where musicians depend on patronage from the nobility or the church to pursue their craft, the post at Thomaskirche in the cultured city of Leipzig is a near guarantee of fame and fortune. In order to fill the position, the city council invites a small number of musicians to audition for the seat, including Johann Sebastian Bach.Based on actual persons and events - twisted into something wholly other - Bach at Leipzig imagines with uncommon intelligence and insight how six little-known musicians resort to bribery, blackmail, and betrayal in an attempt to secure the most coveted musical post in all of Europe. "An irresistible comic mix of high wit, low ribaldry and rich characterization" (Neil Novelli, The ÝSyracuse¨ Post-Standard), the play explores the depths to which some will sink to pursue their calling in a subtly crafted farce that simultaneously confronts profound questions about humanity, God, and art.

    In IVANOV, Chekhov created a portrait of a man plagued with self-doubt and despair. Considered one of Chekhov’s most elusive characters, he seeks more in life than the self-absorption and ennui he sees in his contemporaries. Tormented by falling out of love with his dying Jewish wife, Ivanov, on her death, proposes to the young daughter of a neighbor, but, as the wedding party assembles, a final burst of his habitual indecisiveness has fatal results. 83p.

    British playwright Tom Stoppard's long-awaited and monumental trilogy explores the life and times of a group of friends who came of age under the Tsarist autocracy of Nicholas I, and for whom the term intelligentsia was coined. Among them are the anarchist Michael Bakunin, the writer Ivan Turgenev, critic Vissarion Belinsky, and Alexander Herzen, the self-proclaimed socialist in Russia, who becomes the main focus of this drama of politics, love, loss, and betrayal. Stoppard presents an inspired examination of the struggle between romantic anarchy, utopian idealism and practical reformation, in a chronicle that personifies the struggle for political freedom in an age of empire. A boxed set of three hardcover volumes. Volume I: Voyage. Volume II: Shipwreck. Volume III: Salvage.

    'Travesties' was born out of playwright Tom Stoppard's noting that in 1917, three of the 20th century's most crucial revolutionaries - James Joyce, the Dadaist Tristan Tzara, and Lenin - were all living in Zurich. Also living in the Swiss city was a British consular official called Henry Carr, a man acquainted with Joyce through the theatre and later through a lawsuit concerning a pair of trousers. Taking Carr as his core, Stoppard spins this historical coincidence into a masterful and riotously funny play, a speculative portrait of what could have been the meeting of these profoundly influential men in a germinal Europe as seen through the lucid, lurid, faulty & riveting memory of an aging Carr.
