Library to Host Talk on Stoppard’s Dramas

Email Favicon Facebook Favicon LinkedIn Favicon

The Westport Public Library will host a talk on Sunday at 2 p.m. on Tom Stoppard’s 2002 epic trilogy of plays “Coast of Utopia.”

The work, which focuses on 19th century Russian intellectuals dreaming of revolution, had its American debut last year at Lincoln Center. While the plays received critical praise, many theatergoers were apprehensive about the density of the philosophical debate at the heart of the plays.

Mark Schenker, associate dean at Yale College, says, however, the average, literate reader and theatergoer can approach such dense plays as dramas and will explain how in a talk entitled “Who’s Afraid of Tom Stoppard? Navigating The Coast of Utopia.”

The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call (203) 291-4840 or visit
