Tower Theatre present Travesties at the Bridewell Theatre


Tower Theatre Company present a new production of Tom Stoppard's 1974 play Travesties at the Bridewell Theatre in central London from 7 to 11 April 2015.

The production will be directed by Adam Taylor with designs by Michael Bettell, lighting design by Robert Irvine, costume by Jessica Hammett and sound design by Laurence Tuerk.

"In the play the less notable English consular official Carr, who is likewise a real person and was similarly in Zürich, recalls his perceptions and his experiences with these influential figures. As Carr reminisces, his memories are couched in a Zurich production of Oscar Wilde's play The Importance of Being Earnest, in which Carr once played the role of Algernon. Carr's memories become prone to distraction, and instead of predictable historical biography these characters are interpreted through the maze of his mind."

Tom Stoppard's drama premiered in 1974 and went on to win the 1976 Tony Award for Best New Play.

The Tower Theatre Company is an amateur theatre group originally founded in 1932. It aims to provide high quality affordable drama and currently has more than 700 members performing regularly across London.
