"'Enter A Free Man' was Tom Stoppard's first play. It was originally written as a television play and produced under the title 'A Walk on the Water' in 1963. Its first performance under its present title in a stage version occurred in London in 1968. By that time Stoppard was already well known, principally as the author of 'Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead,' a farrago of pseudo-intellectual coruscations that bamboozled all of the academic critics—who, as usual, were obsequiously trot ting along in servile emulation of the newspaper reviewers. 'Enter A Free Man' was written before Stoppard had taught himself the trick of hoodwinking the critics by gilding nonsense with the appearance of profundity by means of liberal dollops of literary and philosophical references. 'Enter A Free Man,' then, has none of the ornate verbal trappings of Stoppard's later plays. (One wonders if he takes himself seriously. Probably.) It can be looked upon either as a play about an English and somewhat reduced version of Flaubert's Bouvard or Pecuchet, a man to whom we must grudgingly give our admiration because of the 'difference' and independent spirit that his wife sees in him, or as a play about the invincible tenacity and survival value of idiocy." --- George Wellwarth
