"Bernard has arrived to uncover the scandal which is said to have taken place when Lord Byron stayed at Sidley Park." "Tom Stoppard's absorbing play takes us back and forth between the centuries and explores the nature of truth and time, the difference between the Classical and the Romantic temperament, and the disruptive influence of sex on our orbits in life - 'the attraction which Newton left out'."--Jacket." ;
