Take one part Wilde, a touch of Lenin, a dash of Dada, a pinch of Joyce and you’ve got Tom Stoppard’s absurdly hilarious Travesties. Prepare to be delighted as Stoppard (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Shakespeare in Love) spins you into a dazzling medley of literature, philosophy, politics, and history. The wildest revolutionary minds of the 20th century come alive in this romantic and achingly funny modern masterpiece.

“A remarkable play...clever, adroit and ultimately moving, encrusted with puns, garnished with verbal extravagances, madcap fun. The entertainment offered is not just illuminating, it is actually dazzling."

“A tinderbox of a play blazing with wit, paradox, parody and, yes, ideas. It is exhilaratingly, diabolically clever.”
is one of the great comedic masterpieces of the 20th century. I am of the belief that it’s Stoppard’s greatest play. Put simply, it’s a memory play of events in 1917 remembered by a man in 1974, and not necessarily remembered correctly. As with all of Tom’s plays, it contains extraordinary ruminations on life and art, but it does it in a way that is boldly comedic.”
