Jumpers Script Cover

Jumpers

‘Professor of moral philosophy debates existence of God. While mentally-unbalanced wife has an affair, police inspector investigates murder in their house, and radicals form new British government.’

The Incredible Radical Liberal Jumpers are a team of acrobatic professors of philosophy, whose absurd gymnastic displays reflect a bewildering world where logic has confounded belief in moral absolutes. In this dark, exuberant comedy, Stoppard brilliantly parodies the philosophy lecture, the detective thriller, the comedy of manners and the Whitehall farce, to follow a philosopher’s doomed flight to prove the existence of God in the face of an indifferent universe.

This is the definitive text of Tom Stoppard’s celebrated comedy.

‘A dazzling, hilarious and honestly benevolent work, which creates a dramatic structure from a forbidding diversity of materials.’ The Times
