WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A whirlwind comedy of history, memory, and the collision of ideas, Travesties springs from the often faulty memory of Henry Wilfred Carr, a minor official of the British consul in Zurich, Switzerland. In 1917, Carr was asked to take a role in The Importance of Being Earnest by none other than the soon-to-be-famous writer James Joyce. See what happens when Carr's impossible boring life intersects with Joyce, Anti-art artist Tristan Tzara, and revolutionary Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, better known as Lenin.
