Jumpers : a play

by:Stoppard, Tom

Murder, marriage and metaphysics are the three elements that link the bizarre series of events in Tom Stoppard's high-spirited comedy, Jumpers. The protagonists include George Moore, an aging professor of moral philosophy whose quest to compose a lecture on 'Man--Good, Bad or Indifferent' is put on hold while he ponders the existence of his sock; his youthful wife Dotty, a former musical star on a downward spiral whose charm may explain the corpse in the next room; George's specially trained hare, Thumper; and a chorus of poorly-trained gymnasts whose exploits set the stage for this topsy-turvy world.

The emigrants : or, A trip to the Ohio, a theatrical farce (1817) : a comedic portrayal of English emigrants who never get to America

by:Cumberland, George, 1754-1848

George Cumberland's unpublished and almost unrecorded farce of about 1817 called The Emigrants or A Trip to The Ohio amiably pokes fun at Yankees, Yorkshiremen, Irishmen, and Utopians, and it is a treasure-house of slang, such as "Obstropelous". Its polymath author was a prolific artist, inventor, geologist, poet, political radical, novelist, and intimate friend of William Blake.
