Description

Full Length Play

Comedy

This provocative and funny look at exploitation and corruption, journalistic ethics, freedom of the press, and marital infidelity is set in a fictional, copper-rich African nation. Dick Wagner of The Sunday Globe and a competing freelance journalist arrive at the jungle home of a white mine owner. Soon they are competing for the use of their host’s telex, the attentions of his wife, and a possible interview with the missing president of Kambawe.

"An unabashed paean to the fourth estate [...] and those knights errant who rode out on crusades to far flung lands in search of a scoop, a snapshot, booze, a fair maiden and a working telex, not always in that order [...] All of this provides a springboard for Mr. Stoppard's wit" - The New York Times

"Stoppard is at his dazzlingly playful verbal best [...] It's fun [...] bringing rare style to Broadway." - New York Daily News

"Dazzling [...] It throbs with life and is a pleasure." - New York Post
