Liberals in literature and films (9)

Quiz No.2:
Which play has the following exchange and who wrote it ?

DOTTY:Archie says it was a coup d'etat not a general election.
GEORGE: Glib nonsense. It is unthinkable that the Radical Liberal Party could manipulate the democratic process...Furthermore I had a vote.
DOTTY:It's not the voting that's democracy, it's the counting.

Jumpers by Tom Stoppard

(Must confess to having googled this after being intrigued)...

Congratulations to Martin who correctly identified the play. Sadly I missed the production at the National Theatre where a topless Diana Rigg swung across the stage on a trapeze.
