Other Information Tom Stoppard wrote these two plays to be performed together. Dogg's Hamlet is influenced by concepts dealing with interpretation of language in Ludwig Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations. Cahoot's Macbeth is dedicated to Czech playwright Pavel Kohot whom  Stoppard met in Prague in 1977. Kohot was prevented from  working in the official theatre by Communist authorities and because of this set up a company to perform Macbeth secretly in living rooms in Prague.
