About Every Good Boy Deserves Favour

Following a sell-out run in 2009, Tom Stoppard and André Previn's electrifying play for actors and orchestra returns to the National Theatre for a limited season.

A dissident is locked up in an asylum. If he accepts that he was ill, has been treated and is now cured, he will be released. He refuses. Sharing his cell is a real lunatic, Ivanov, who believes himself to be surrounded by an orchestra. As the dissident's son begs his father to free himself with a lie, Tom Stoppard's darkly funny play asks if denying the truth is a price worth paying for liberty.
