Tom Stoppard’s dazzling comedy of art, love and revolution features James Joyce, Tristan Tzara and Lenin as remembered - and misremembered - by Henry Carr, a minor British diplomat in Zurich 1917.
When Gwendolen and Cecily wander in from The Importance of Being Earnest Henry’s mind wanders too. He knows he was Algernon in a production in Zurich. But who was the other one? 

The original production of Travesties won the Evening Standard award for Best Comedy and the Tony award for Best Play

This first London revival in over 20 years is directed by Patrick Marber and starring Tom Hollander, Freddie Fox, Peter McDonald, Clare Foster, Forbes Masson, Amy Morgan, Sarah Quist, Tim Wallers.

Tom Hollander was beyond magical!! Everything from the entire cast, to the staging and of course the writing by Stoppard made this truly one of the best productions I have ever seen. So lucky to have gotten tickets before it sadly closed. Bravo!!!!!

The best theatre experience ever. Chemistry between cast exceptional. Polished, 110% commitment from all . Wish I was going again tomorrow. Alas the run has finished. Theatre staff also excellent and parking deal means that next time we shall come and watch 2 theatre productions to maximise the £20 car park deal. Fantastic overral experience. Will never forget,

We really enjoyed this play. All the cast were great but we must single out Tom Hollander who was simply magnificent! What a pity it finished yesterday as we would have loved to see it all again just to be sure we hadn't missed anything.
