A Separate Peace / The Real Inspector Hound


In Spring 2019 we performed two one-act plays by Tom Stoppard.

‘A Separate Peace’ is a sly, gentle dig at society’s conventions and preconceptions. John Brown arrives at a country nursing home with a case of money expecting hotel-style service but is neither physically or mentally ill. Why is he there and who is he really?

‘The Real Inspector Hound’ focuses on Moon and Birdboot, two drama critics who arrive to watch the performance of a new detective play, a parody of the conventional stage thriller. However, the private lives of the critics become inextricably mixed with those of the play’s characters.
