【偵探兩個扮】

劇情介紹

【偵探兩個扮】為英國劇作家史托帕特(Tom Stoppard)所寫的一篇短劇,故事的主軸沿著兩位劇場評論家MoonBirdboot 觀賞一齣荒謬的鄉村小屋謀殺疑案進行。他們偶然地被捲入與劇中相似情節,並引起一連串事件。

這篇劇作誕生於19611962之間,起初被命名為The Stand-ins The Critics,模仿著名偵探劇劇作家阿嘉莎.克莉絲蒂(Agatha Christie)的典型起居室疑案【捕鼠器】(The Mousetrap)。批評家將他們個人慾望和情感投射在劇中,交織成誇張和自負的評論。

【偵探兩個扮】與史托帕特早期的作品Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead有很高的相似度,都以命運和自由意志為探討主題,並同樣以「劇中劇」的方式呈現。這也是一篇荒謬劇的典範。

 

Plot Summary

The Real Inspector Hound is a short play by Tom Stoppard. The story line follows two theatre critics called Moon and Birdboot who are watching a ridiculous set-up of a country house murder mystery, in the style of a "whodunit". By accident, they become involved in the action causing a series of events that parallel the play they are watching.

    The play was written between 1961 and 1962, initially named The Stand-ins and later, The Critics. It is a parody of the stereotypical parlor mystery in the style of Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap, as well as of the critics watching the play, with their personal desires and obsessions interwoven into their bombastic and pompous review.

    The Real Inspector Hound, much like Stoppard's earlier play Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, examines the ideas of fate and free will as well as exploring the themes of the "play-within-a-play". It is an example of the dramatic style of absurdism.
