    1. If there's anything by Stoppard I don't love, it's only because I haven't read it yet. I love the way he plays with words, as in the title. A good one act for a couple.Library copy

    2. Like a very brainy 70's sitcom, with bus conductors, plummy voiced bosses and the speaking clock to the fore. The whole thing is a jab at the tyranny of the clock but there is a philosophical cry for help hidden in there as well, if not a running commentary on the role of women and the worker.
