Science Play of the Day: Hapgood


by Tom Stoppard

I can't remember which side I'm supposed to be working for, and it is not in fact necessary for me to know.

The Cold War is approaching its endgame and somebody in spymaster Elizabeth Hapgood's network is leaking secrets. Is her star double agent really a triple? the trap she sets becomes a hall of mirrors in which betrayal is personal and treachery a trick of the light.
