Read Tom Stoppard's "Hapgood"

  • March 18, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • ACT rehearsal space

Does light come in waves or particles? Experiment will show either: the experimenter can choose. A double-agent is like of a trick of light. Dual natures of light and of people are themes of Stoppard's espionage thriller.

"Hapgood " is a new variation on one of Tom Stoppard's abiding themes: the dark romance of reality and appearance. This is a metaphysical spy-thriller, intricate, elegant, and lucid, for sheer intellectual excitement Hapgood has no rival.  (Sunday London Times).

"We choose to examine a phenomenon which is impossible to explain in any classical way and which has in it the heart of quantum mechanics. In reality it contains the only mystery ... any other situation in quantum mechanics, it turns out, can always be explained by saying, "you remember the experiment with the two holes?  It's the same thing." Richard Feynman.

Hapgood is about espionage, focussing on a British  female spymaster and who is juggling career and family. (The Guardian).

    I like to read the scripts ahead of time, if possible. Usually it's accessible somewhere on the site, no?
