The Real Thing
I forgive a lot for the cricket-bat metaphor. This starts out being one play, a truly fascinating one, about metafiction and the nature of belief and the power of context, but turns out to be a different one, with politics visible and Stoppard's weakness with writing women on full display. It's still good and interesting, but it's a simplified Arcadia, and I'm sorry for that.
