Following a successful run at The Menier Chocolate Factory, Patrick Marber's acclaimed revival of Tom Stoppard's award-winning 1974 comedy Travesties transfers to the West End for a limited season starring Tom Hollander alongside Amy Morgan, Freddie Fox, Clare Foster and Forbes Masson.
This anarchic tale of art, literature, revolution and inconsequence is told through the memories of British consular official Henry Carr, an eccentric and slightly batty elderly man who reminisces about Zürich in 1917 during the First World War where he mixed with Irish writer James Joyce, Dadaism founder Tristan Tzara and the communist revolutionary Lenin.
As he reminisces, Carr's memory becomes prone to distraction, and instead of predictable historical biography these characters are interpreted through the maze of his mind with added embellishments, distractions and entertaining interludes.
