How was your experience?
This is a typical Stoppard play - well researched and intellectual. Since it is set in the early 1980s in UK, many cultural references would be unfamiliar to today's American public - so I suggest reading the script beforehand to help in understanding the play. It is more important to do so because the actors imitate fake English accents which tend to distract rather than enhance the experience. The acting was fairly good. The venue does not have a bad seat as there are only four rows arranged in the circle around the stage. Overall, it was just OK play.
