Hapgood
PHILADELPHIA PREMIERE
By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Peter DeLaurier
September 6 - October 14, 2018

A brilliant woman fights to keep her place in a profession dominated by men. With Tom Stoppard's characteristic wit and verve, Russian espionage collides with particle physics in this mesmerizing journey through a wildly complex counterintelligence operation – and absolutely nothing is what it appears to be.

News & Reviews

"Lantern Theater [Company]'s production, directed by Peter DeLaurier, rises to the challenge of this enormously and gleefully complicated spy story... an enormously entertaining evening and launches what promises to be a brave season of five heady shows at the Lantern." –Phindie  more

"There is something magical about the way Tom Stoppard uses scientific concepts to reveal the nature of human emotion. This Hapgood will certainly keep you guessing and leave you with a lot to think about." –Talkin' Broadway  more

"The principal delight of the Lantern's staging is in the thrust and parry of Stoppard's vivid, imperfect, preternaturally articulate characters, of whose loyalties we're never entirely sure." –The Philadelphia Inquirer

"There will be reversals and ironies. There will be twins and identity confusions. There will be physics." –Philadelphia Magazine

"Sly, occasionally amusing, often touching, sometimes disturbing, occasionally opaque, and there is a gruesome murder. It is great theater, and you will be the richer for having seen it." –Philly Gay Calendar
