The Barn Theatre, Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire
FROM THE BARN THEATRE ARCHIVE

Travesties

by Tom Stoppard
Directed by Michael McArdle
Assistant Producer Carole Dale Couzens
Choreography Deborah Thompson
13th – 20th April 1985
Thanks to the Red Lion Inn, Welwyn for the loan of furniture

Hoopsa, boyaboy, hoopsa!

What other playwright could pull it off: James Joyce, Tristan Tzara and Lenin improbably stuck side by side in the parched earth of Zurich in 1917 and defended with antic and eccentric vigour by Henry Carr, a semi-fictitious British consul cast as Ernest in an amateur production, master-minded by Joyce, of Wilde’s Importance of Bing Earnest.

Hurrah for Stoppard!
