    A very odd play Essentially a very surreal tale of detection somewhat like 'The Real Inspector Hound' I really enjoyed the aspects of Magritte's work into the play but it was also uite an odd play Obviously very surreal and funny Not entirely sure how much I would enjoy actually seeing it outside of how all of the interesting staging would look but I did enjoy reading it I also loved how Stoppard tied everything together at the end in such an amusing fashion

    Well blow on the light and whether you meant Maigret Margaret but classify a Tuba along with femur and fibula Magritte style recognizable icons of Magritte paintings wend their way into the play to contradict almost beyond delightful

    A deliriously witty and surreal play paying homage to Magritte through visual puns and the loveably daft nature of it's plot Light and very funny this has wordplay of the highest order and a serious intelligence cutting loose

    Absurd as only Tom Stoppard can be; this one was almost TOO absurd for me I laughed of course but it just didn't hit me like some of his other plays

    Will you kindly stop interrupting while I am about to embark on my exegesisShort and funny play that ties up all the loose ends neatly

    Great for people who laugh at lightbulb jokes and think tuba noises are inherently comic
