TONIGHT SEES the unveiling of New York Theatre Workshop's much- admired staging of Eugene O'Neill's More Stately Mansions, a rough draft that survived against his wishes.

Play Wisty for Me inspects the addled, brilliant life and work of Peter Cook (right) with a batch of pastiche material so good it sounds like it's been rescued from the archives.
