2022/23 Mainstage Season

TRAVESTIES
By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Charles McMahon

LIVE ON STAGE
Now - October 9, 2022


Zürich, 1917. In Tom Stoppard's Tony Award-winning comic masterpiece, obscure British diplomat Henry Carr and Dadaist Tristan Tzara are in love with Cecily and Gwendolen, but Cecily is in love with communism and someone named Jack. James Joyce stages a production of The Importance of Being Earnest, and the action gets heated when Vladimir Lenin bursts onto the scene. Soon everyone in neutral Switzerland is at war over the question, "What does it mean to be an artist and a revolutionary?"

SENSORY SENSITIVITY ADVISORY: Act II of this production includes a 15-second lighting effect designed to mimic the look of an early movie reel.

This production will be performed at St. Stephen's Theater, which is conveniently located at 923 Ludlow Street in Center City Philadelphia. Directions & parking»
