"T" Is For Tom: Stoppard's Radio Works
Tom Stoppard, one of the most celebrated dramatists of his time, cut his dramatic teeth on radio dramas at the BBC in the 1960s and 1970s. The Jerome L. Greene Performance Space at WNYC and WQXR presents two of his radio dramas as part of “T” Is for Tom, a cycle of rare early works by England’s most intellectually nimble playwright.

Stoppard came of age during a period on tremendous social change in England, and his radio dramas beautifully showcase the Czech-born writer’s uncanny ear for social and psychological dissolution through language. The resulting works are characteristically elegant, cheeky, lyrical, and transgressive.
“T” IS FOR TOM is presented as part of A New Theater of Sound in collaboration with Yorinks Theater Group and is produced by Sarah Montague and Arthur Yorinks. The Executive Producer of the Jerome L. Greene Performance Space is Indira Etwaroo.
