"Jumpers" explores and satirises the field of academic philosophy, likening it to a less-than skilful competitive gymnastics display. Jumpers raises questions such as "What do we know?" and "Where do values come from?" It is set in an alternate reality where some British astronauts have landed on the moon and "Radical Liberals" have taken over the British government.
The original production of “Jumpers” opened on B’way on Apr 22, 1974 under the auspices of The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Frederick Brisson, Roger L Stevens and The Billy Rose Foundation. Peter Wood was the Director.
