Wittgenstein meets Hamlet, and Macbeth meets Soviet Prague in these two meta-Shakespearean one-acts by the always-imaginative Tom Stoppard, written in 1978 to be performed together. In the former, Stoppard mines Hamlet as a lingua franca for a linguistic farce deploying the philosophical logic of Ludwig Wittgenstein. In the latter, a truncated version of the Scottish Play is staged in a Czech living room, as was common Cold War practice among theatre artists. As Newsweek wrote: “The incorrigibly playful Stoppard has never been more serious than in this most playful of his works. Like George Orwell, Stoppard knows that language and liberty are intertwined: when language is perverted, corrupted or forcibly repressed, so is liberty.”
