Tom Hollander shines in Tom Stoppard's wild ride of a comedy
Following a sell-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Patrick Marber’s revival of Tom Stoppard’s award-winning play Travesties transfers to the West End. Starring Tom Hollander as Henry Carr, the war-time comedy received rave reviews from audiences and critics alike Opening at London’s Apollo Theatre, Travesties begins preview performances on February 3rd 2017. Set primarily in Zürich, Switzerland, Travesties follows English diplomat Henry Carr during the First World War. Living in the city, Henry surrounds himself with beloved characters, including communist revolutionary Lenin, Tristan Tzara and Irish writer James Joyce – as well as Gwendolen and Cecily from Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest. Henry knows he was Algernon in a production of the play, but as this dazzling comedy reaches a mind-boggling climax, you begin to wonder just what he truly remembers – or misremembers.
