“Cahoot’s Macbeth”

Editorial Reviews

Newsweek
The incorrigibly playful Stoppard has never been more serious than in this most playful of his works [Doggs Hamlet and Cahoot's Macbeth]. Like George Orwell, Stoppard knows that language and liberty are intertwined: when language is perverted, corrupted or forcibly repressed, so is liberty.
New York Times Book Review
When it comes to Dirty Linen, there are no national boundaries. It is a tidal basin of laughter.
Daily News
New-Found-Land takes over, as architecturally sound as the introduction of a Beethoven scherzo.
Newsweek
"Stoppard is the master comedian of ideas in the English language."
New York Post
"The Real Inspector Hound is a comedy of satire of high and delightful quality, and great fun... The action is fast, continuous, and extremely funny."
