By TOM STOPPARD
A spy thriller
Someone in spymaster Hapgood’s agency is leaking secret research to Moscow. Hapgood is under pressure to expose the culprit.
She suspects there is a mole in her agency. CIA Agent Wates suspects Hapgood herself. Hapgood’s boss suspects Kerner (a brilliant Russian scientist who has defected to the West and is also a double agent - but is he a triple?). Will Hapgood’s elaborate scheme to expose the traitor be a success or is there more to it than meets the eye?
Originally starring Felicity Kendal, Nigel Hawthorne and Roger Rees, Hapgood has been described as “Ingenious” (Spectator) and “Dazzling” (Independent). Reviewing the play’s most recent professional outing in 2008 starring Josie Lawrence, The Guardian wrote: “Tom Stoppard’s most cunning play – a dazzling double game of physics and espionage – remarkable”.
