HAPGOOD

July 1021
By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Evan Yionoulis

Treacherous twins and double (or triple?) agents abound in a twisty-turny look at the unlikely nexus of international espionage and quantum physics. Simultaneously channeling John le Carré, Albert Einstein, and Mel Brooks, Stoppard’s Cold-War thriller boasts equal shares of brains, guts, and sly humor.  Kate Burton takes on the tour-de-force title role, the brilliant but eccentric British intelligence chief working to expose a Soviet double agent while trying to keep her personal life under wraps.

Press and Media

"...clever blend of James Bond spy-on-spy story spiced with particle physics ...deliciously complex." | Boston Broadway World

"Burton is simply superb as the indefatigable Hapgood, portraying her with a crisp efficiency while offering tantalizing glimpses of vulnerability beneath her guarded surface." | Examiner

"In 'Hapgood', that wilderness takes a form that is geopolitical and personal. The achievement of Burton's performance is that she makes us keenly feel the relative stakes of both." | The Boston Globe
