Summary
One of the world's most internationally acclaimed and most-staged playwrights, Tom Stoppard has also written for TV, radio, and film, and has won an Academy Award and four Tony Awards for his work. To mark his seventy-fifth birthday in July of 2012, the British Library has released, for the first time, the original BBC broadcasts of four of his most important radio plays in this five-disc audio set.   Dating from 1967 to 1991, the plays collected here are Albert's Bridge , Artist Descending a Staircase , The Dog It Was That Died , and In the Native State . The actors featured include Peggy Ashcroft, John Hurt, Penelope Keith, and Felicity Kendal. Revealing the humor and humanity characteristic of his works for the stage and film, this sample of Tom Stoppard's original plays for the radio will heighten any fan's interest in and appreciation for the writer's complete oeuvre.
