by Tom Stoppard

Directed by Michael McArdle

Saturday 13th – Saturday 20th April 1985 in the Auditorium

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!
