One of the premier playwrights of his generation, Tom Stoppard (Arcadia, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead) hilariously dissects Agatha Christie-style locked-room mysteries in The Real Inspector Hound. Drawing on his personal experience as a theater critic, Stoppard weaves a brilliant play within a play, in which two critics reviewing yet another manor house murder story unwittingly become a part of the action. Soon, the walls between reality and fiction begin to blur. It's all pulled off with Stoppard's trademark wit as he examines fate and free will with an absurdist touch in this production at the Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts.
