THE STORY: In the fictional, copper-rich African nation of Kambawe, corruption, ethical malpractice, and marital infidelity are abound. And the press intends to report on it. When Dick Wagner of the Sunday Globe and a competing freelance journalist arrive at the jungle home of a white mine owner, they are soon competing for the use of their host’s telex, the attentions of his wife, and a possible interview with the missing president of Kambawe.
“The dialogue is brisk, funny and stinging as Stoppard arms this cast with witty and sharp comments and observations. …NIGHT AND DAY is an idea play filled with intelligent discourse, spoken by well-rounded characters.” —ChicagoTheatreCritic.com
