One of the most convoluted Stoppard works I've ever read - and that's setting a high bar, since Stoppard is noted for his convoluted plots. This one involves agents and double agents, with twins moving in and out to complicate things. At one point or another, everyone is suspect. Red herrings draw you first one way, then the other, and a few traces of quantum physics lend an air of strategic importance to the goings on. In the end, the scheming of the agents and moles renders the activities of the various intelligence agencies (mostly British, in this case, but with a short nod to the KGB and CIA, as well) ridiculous and buffoonish. Which, if one follows the news, is not a difficult conclusion to reach. Stoppard presents it all with wit and style, but it does not match some of his other, more sublime plays.
