With his characteristically brilliant wordplay and extraordinary scope, Tom Stoppard has in Hapgood devised a play that. Not in United States?

Does light come in waves or particles? Experient will show either: the experimenter can choose. A double agent is like a trick of the light,' Kerner the physicist tells Blair the spycatcher. You get what you interrogate fo. Dual natures, of light and of people, are the theme of Tom Stoppard's espionage thriller. Is Ridley the double? Or is Kerner a triple?

After getting into Tom Stoppard, his evasive play Hapgood struck my interest, and I tracked it down on Amazon to see if it was any good (while a fan of Stoppard, I seem to either love his stuff or become bored to death with it, depending on the subject matter... Arcadia and The Real Thing are some of my other favorites...). First of all, it is good. There's quite a lot of interesting spy things going on, and like Stoppard's The Real Thing, the way scenes are framed can lead (purposefully) to a bit of confusion, which is a good thing in a story with so many double and triple crosses going on...

I should mention my concern regarding this play, in that apparently there is an original "lost" version of the text which was performed to poor reviews, rewritten, and is now only available in this new form (and performed that way, if people still put on productions...). I'm led to believe that the original has a lot more confusing bits about quantum physics, which is part of what piqued my interest in the first place. While this version seems to have lost most of the bits about physics and the nature of reality, there's still a lot of really great spy-speak and three-card-monty-esque briefcase drop-off scenes.

All in all, I highly recommend this play to fans of espionage (If you liked Mamet's Heist, you'll be right at home, here...).

Oh, and I don't know why, but I guess simply based on the title, or whatever, but I assumed Hapgood was a man, which is not the case. Weird how the brain works...

Hapgood is a very dense play, a work of genius, correlating
the British spy system with the mysteries of quantum
mechanics. Great story and gives science info., in the
group of his Arcadia and Fryan's Copenhagen. Terrific
and challenges the audience to THINK!
