Travesties by Tom Stoppard
About the Play
Take one part Oscar Wilde, a touch of Vladimir Lenin, a dash of Dadaism, a pinch of James Joyce and you’ve got Tom Stoppard’s absurdly hilarious Travesties. Prepare to be delighted (and challenged) as Stoppard weaves together a whimsical mix of literature, philosophy, politics, and history.
Travesties will be directed by Gregory Baisden.
