A Separate Peace
Another Moon Called Earth
Squaring the Circle
Introduced by the author, this third collection of plays written by Tom Stoppard contains his television plays, written between 1965 and 1984. They show that Stoppard's writing for the small screen is comparable to his more celebrated stage work, as the masterly and timely Professional Foul demonstrates. In his introduction the author briefly describes how the pieces came to be written and the circumstances of their original production.
Originally published as "The Television Plays 1965-1984", this collection of Tom Stoppard drama texts includes "A Separate Peace", "Teeth", "Another Moon Called Earth", "Neutral Ground", "Professional Foul", and "Squaring the Circle".
