The Real Inspector Hound
By Tom Stoppard
Attending the premiere of a new murder mystery, two feuding theater critics soon find themselves drawn into the play-within-a-play! In the hilarious spoof of Agatha Christie-style mysteries that follows, the mists roll in around isolated Muldoon Manor, and the critics become implicated in the lethal activities of an escaped madman. It’s brilliant comedy as only Tom Stoppard can do!
“The Real Inspector Hound is an exceedingly clever lampoon, sharply in focus…” —The New York Times “What absurd fun Tom Stoppard created when he let fantasies run wild.” —Evening Standard “Witty and delicious parody of the fog bound whodunit.” —Guardian “A tour de force of theatrical metaphysics.” —Daily Mail “A masterpiece…. Stoppard mines murder mystery conventions and strikes gold.” —Independent on Sunday
