Every Good Boy Deserves Favour
The plot of Every Good Boy Deserves Favour finds a dissident locked up in an asylum. He will be released if he admits that he was ill, has been treated and is now cured. His cell is shared by another patient who believes he is surrounded by an orchestra. As the dissident’s son begs his father to free himself with a lie, Stoppard’s darkly funny and provocative play asks if denying the truth is a price worth paying for liberty.
