An acrobat has been murdered at a party given by the manically depressive former musical comedy star, Dotty Moore, to celebrate the accession of a new Radical Liberal government. Her husband George, an ageing professor of moral philosophy, attempts to rehearse a lecture while ignoring the nearby corpse as his wife entertains his university boss and a chorus of gymnasts from the philosophy department. What follows is a murder mystery thriller displaying Tom Stoppard's verbal ingenuity within an anarchic comical setting of adultery, gymnastics and moon landings.Performers Simon Russell Beale (George Moore), John Rogan (Crouch), Nicholas Woodeson (Bones), Essie Davis (Dorothy), Jonathan Hyde (Archie), Eliza Lumley (the Secretary), Robert Barton, Jean Felix Calens, Jonathan Campbell, Gary Cross, Joseph J Leigh, Leo Kay, Karl Magee, Dodger Phillips, Ashley Stuart, Phil Seaman, Supple, Lewis Young, Martin Chamberlain, Alan Leith, Joanna Morton, Stephen Watts.
