Every Good Boy Deserves Favour is a collaborative piece written by the unique artistic team of Tom Stoppard and André Previn. In a Soviet asylum in 1977, two men share a cell. While Ivanov is a genuine mental patient who believes he’s conducting the full orchestra that appears on stage, Alexander is a political prisoner who must admit his “mental illness” to regain his freedom. The play is rarely performed because of its need for a full orchestra.
André Previn is an Oscar- and Grammy-winning composer and a former music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Tom Stoppard is a playwright and screenwriter best known for the movies Brazil and Shakespeare in Love and the plays Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead and Arcadia.
