Portrait of Tom Stoppard

Tom Stoppard

Sir Tom Stoppard is one of British theatre’s most prolific exports: a giant of modern playwriting, and one of the most internationally performed dramatists of his generation.

Stoppard has written extensively for TV, radio, film and stage, with works including Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, Arcadia and the screenplay for the Academy-Award winning Shakespeare in Love.

The writer – whose itinerant family resided briefly in Australia during World War II, when he was a young child – is the recipient of one Academy Award, four Tony Awards and a Golden Lion. Much of his body of work has been met with both critical and popular acclaim.
