Tom Stoppard, one of the most celebrated dramatists of his time, cut his dramatic teeth on radio dramas at the BBC.  The Jerome L. Greene Performance Space at WNYC and WQXR presents one of his radio dramas as part of “T” Is for Tom, a cycle of rare early works by England’s most intellectually nimble playwright.

The Dog It Was That Died
This John le Carré pastiche has a typically Stoppardian satirical twist.  The failed suicide attempt of a British intelligence clerk reveals cracks in his department and his superiors.  Everyone is so busy trying to play the game, they forgot what board they’re on, and sly stabs at government bureaucracy and upper crust suburban life make for elegantly boisterous fun.
