Artist Descending A Staircase, available for streaming on our website from April 5 – April 18, 2021, is one of Tom Stoppard’s brilliant early radio plays, written in 1972 and a precursor to Travesties, The Real Thing and The Invention of Love.

The story, full of sparkling wit, heart-wrenching romance and modern art, begins with the mysterious death of one of three very old men, all artists and friends since their schooldays. The two elderly survivors hilariously set about examining their emotional and artistic histories, descending backwards in time from 1972 to 1914 and forwards again, tracing their intertwined youthful relationships and unconsciously uncovering the tragedy in their past.

Available for streaming April 5 – April 18, 2021
