Another Moon Called Earth – Tom Stoppard
Tom Stoppard’s one act play was a prototype for his huge hit Jumpers. A man has landed on the moon and Penelope finds this strangely distressing. The idea that someone has looked at the earth from outside seems to have destroyed all the old certainties and moral truths. She has taken to her bed and is behaving strangely. Her husband understands nothing of this: who is the daily gentleman visitor in Penelope’s bedroom and what has happened to her old nanny?
In typical Stoppard manner, the play sparkles with wit and wordplay and is still fresh today on its fiftieth anniversary.
The Man in the Bowler Hat – AA Milne
A peaceful evening, knitting and reading the paper by the fire, is interrupted by strange events. Quietly dreaming of real adventure, one happens before their eyes as John and Mary find themselves caught up in a ghastly plot to steal the Rajah’s Ruby. To say more would be to reveal too much!
