  1. Ah, Tom Stoppard, my favorite playwright. We've seen most of his plays, Arcadia being our favorite. You know he wrote the screenplay for Shakespeare in Love.

    1. I must admit I am terrible with screenwriters. Also playwrights, we don't have a theatre around and I do read a play from time to time but would enjoy the stories more if I could watch them. After all, that's what they are written for, right.

      However, I will go now and check what else Tom Stoppard has written since I really love "Shakespeare in Love". We just happened to watch that again last week. Such a coincidence.

      Have a good weekend,
