      This 1976 Tony Award winner for Best Play is an eclectic recipe of fact and farce spoofing Oscar Wilde's “The Importance of Being Earnest" and combining Wildean wit with the absurdity and profundity of Dadaist Tristan Tzara, Vladimir Lenin and James Joyce. Tom Stoppard whips up a dazzlingly clever, tasty dish about art and society that is funny, thought provoking and entertaining. Featuring William Elsman* and
      Alexandra Matthew* and directed by Robert Currier.
