Another Moon Called Earth

by Tom Stoppard

What is the most logical of misfortunes? Is history an arbitrary sequence of accidents? Or is it all logical and does it connect into a grand design? What does it take to push your nanny over the edge? And what do lunanauts have to do with all this?

Could the answer be 42?

Will Tom Stoppard's "Another Moon Called Earth" provide any clues? And if it does, will it do it with such lines as: "Oooooh...aaaah...oh-don't stop- ah"?

In other words, is our production of the play going to offer profound insights (into what) or merely frivolous entertainment (what for)?

I'm telling you, if that thought drips through to the bottom people won't just carry on, the things they've taken on trust, they've never had edges before.
