Every Good Boy Deserves Favour Print
A dissident is locked up in an asylum. If he accepts that he was ill, has been treated and is now cured, he will be released but he refuses. Sharing his cell is a real lunatic who believes himself to be surrounded by an orchestra. As the dissident's son begs his father to free himself with a lie, Tom Stoppard's darkly funny and provocative play asks if denying the truth is a price worth paying for liberty.
