"Jumpers is simply dazzling. It takes your breath away with its sheer exuberance of literacy, its cascade of words and conspicuous display of intellect. It is also extraordinarily funny. Jumpers is one of the wittiest and most stimulating plays of the last decade or so."--Clive Barnes, New York Times
Murder, marriage, and metaphysics link the bizarre series of events in this high-spirited comedy, winner of the Evening Standard's Best Play Award. George Moore is an aging professor of moral philosophy whose quest to compose a lecture on "Man--Good, Bad, or Indifferent?" is put on hold while he ponders the existence of his sock. He is joined by his youthful wife, Dotty, a former musical star on a downward spiral whose charm may explain the corpse in the next room; George's specially trained hare, Thumper; and a chorus of poorly trained gymnasts whose exploits set the stage for this topsy-turvy world.
