". . . wonderful play about Byron which alternates between the misguided present-day attempts by a group of dogmatic literary critics to interpret and reconstruct key events in the Byron circle, and the actual events. Hilarious."--D. Riess. "Yes, hilarious and heart-stopping. Went to a recent performance of it in Los Angeles, and was transfixed for three hours. Worth any amount of effort to see."--A. Stein. " . . . wonderful intellectual theater. . . . its mathematical and scientific dimensions are . . . better accessed through that other Byron, Ada, Countess of Lovelace, whose prophetic notes on computer programing undergird the character Stoppard names Tomasina. ...St. Louis Repertory Theatre [gave a] fine production through March 7, 1997." —N.
