Description

TRAVESTIES is a comic whirlwind generated when novelist James Joyce, surrealist Tristan Tzara, and the political revolutionary Lenin walk into a bar... cross paths in the Zurich Library in 1916. Inspired by the True Story of how civil servant Henry Carr later came to sue James Joyce over the price of a pair of pants worn in a production of THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST. (Yes, this craziness really happened. We promise.)  

At the height of Modernism (1890-1930), artists were struggling to come to terms with upheavals in human society, amid sweeping changes in the modernization of thought, of politics, of economics and indeed of every facet of daily life. As we enter a post-industrial, digitized meta-modern age, Tom Stoppard's 1974 play has never been more relevant.
