(From the publisher):
In his new play, Tom Stoppard, the author of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, has created a looking-glass comedy of great suspense and intrigue.
Two drama critics, each preoccupied with his professional status and personal dissatisfaction, go to the theater to see a new thriller. With great dexterity and comic talent, Mr. Stoppard involves these professional observers in the play with results that prove surprisingly serious for both. The double-image technique of this play-within-a-play makes it theater with a complexity of feeling and level of achievement that is as exciting as it is rare.
