ABOUT Travesties

Tom Stoppard’s Travesties at the Apollo Theatre starring Tom Hollander.

The Menier Chocolate Factory’s acclaimed revival of Tom Stoppard’s Travesties transfers to the West End for a limited 12 week run.

The revival stars Tom Hollander as Henry Carr alongside Amy Morgan as Gwendolen, Freddie Fox as Tristan Tzara, Clare Foster and Forbes Masson.

Travesties will run from 3 February 2017 until 29 April 2017 at the Apollo Theatre.


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 cast features Tom Hollander, Freddie Fox, Clare Foster, Forbes Masson, Peter McDonald, Amy Morgan, Sarah Quist and Tim Wallers.


Directed by Patrick Marber with design by Tim Hatley, lighting by Neil Austin, sound and original music by Adam Cork and movement by Polly Bennett.
