Stoppard Escapes Being Nicked

Last Wednesday, Tom Stoppard planned to attend a sub rosa performance of Edward Bond's "Eleven Vests" by the Free Theater of Belarus but cancelled at the last minute. Good thing. Armed police raided the performance and hauled away the actors and the audience. An outcry has been raised.

Stormtroopers are unlikely to interrupt "Rough Crossing" at Shakespeare & Company, now in repertory with "Antony and Cleopatra."

If you'd like to see three of Stoppard's early TV plays performed live, you'd better get to the Boomerang Theatre Company.
