Tom Hollander leads this five-star revival of Tom Stoppard’s comedy Travesties, which received rave reviews at the Menier Chocolate Factory last year. Set in Zurich, Travesties follows consular official Henry Carr, who struggles to dissociate the real and the fantasy. Soon, his meetings with intriguing personalities coincide with his memories of Gwendolen and Cecily, two characters from Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest… Directed by Patrick Marber, this rip-roaring comedy plays at the Apollo Theatre.
Simon Callow directs an all-star cast in Christopher Hampton’s bitingly funny play The Philanthropist at Trafalgar Studios. In a country of chaos, the Prime Minister and his entire cabinet have been assassinated and England’s greatest writers are dropping like flies – meanwhile, floundering philology professor Philip and his friends ponder sex, marriage and the meaning of life. And people say academics are out of touch! Simon Bird, Tom Rosenthal and Charlotte Ritchie star in this searing comedy, opening at Trafalgar Studios in April.
