This apparent diversion proved serendipitous, as a mere four years later, Stoppards aspirations transformed when he saw Peter OTooles production of Hamlet. With time, Stoppard devoted his thoughts to drama, theater, and playwriting, creating such masterpieces as Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Jumpers, Arcadia, and Rock and Roll. Setting the playwright in context to his personal life, social, historical and political events, other writers of influence, and more, you will quickly gain a deep understanding of Tom Stoppard and the plays he wrote. Read Stoppard in an Hour and experience his plays like never before. Know the playwright, love the play!
