Every Good Boy Deserves Favour

November 5, 2022 @ 7:30 pm

A dissident is locked up in an asylum. If he accepts that he was ill and has been cured, he will be released. He refuses. Sharing his cell is a real lunatic who believes himself to be surrounded by an orchestra. As the dissident’s son begs his father to free himself with a lie, Sir Tom Stoppard’s darkly funny and provocative play asks if denying the truth is a price worth paying for liberty. The play premiered in 1977 as a part of Queen Elizabeth II’s Silver Jubilee celebrations. This rarely performed masterpiece features a 45-piece orchestra playing live on stage.
