While I am admittedly inexperienced in reading plays and am largely out of touch with recent publications for stage, I cannot hesitate in recommending this title. Stoppard's play is intricate, nuanced, and informed. Just as is the case with any Aquarian mind -- my interest was piqued by the usage of multiple times and eras in order to unfold the mystery contained within the work. While the flux capacitor is absent from this work, Stoppard adroitly transports his readers to a worm hole to allow them to traverse time in this compact play which engages architecture, erosion (of the natural and human varieties), fame and genius in academia, and, of course, love.
Recommended by a good friend, I am questioning whether the copy can be returned to her.....she has more than one copy, isn't that one more than enough?
