Encompassing work from nearly twenty years of Stoppard's career, this new collection showcases the playwright's dazzling range and virtuosic talent. The Real Inspector Hound is the ultimate country-house whodunit; After Magritte attempts to explain the inexplicable; NewFound-Land chronicles an American's attempt to become a British citizen; Dirty Linen is a daring political farce; and Dogg's Hamlet, Cahoot's Macbeth wickedly subverts Shakespeare. With a preface by the author that offers a chronology of the plays and an insight into their making, The Real Inspector Hound and Other Plays will be essential for all fans of modern drama.
