Tom Stoppard's play is an outrageous comedy, dazzling philosophic debate and crackling murder mystery, all at once.

An aging professor of moral philosophy attempts to create a lecture while ignoring a nearby corpse, his wife entertaining his university boss nearby, and a chorus of academic gymnasts called Jumpers. Politics, space travel and religion also appear in Tom Stoppard’s fantastical comedy.
