Artist Descending A Staircase

by Tom Stoppard

2018, Main Stage

An artist is murdered, leaving his two friends suspecting each other. There is one thing that unites them all: their infatuation with Sophie. Before she tragically went blind, she fell in love with one of them after viewing his picture in a gallery, but there seems to be confusion about whose picture she saw. As in any Stoppard play, reality is never quite what it seems.
