2021/22 Mainstage Season

TRAVESTIES
By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Charles McMahon

LIVE ON STAGE
September 8 - 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, who are both in love with someone named Jack. Carr stages a production of The Importance of Being Earnest with James Joyce, 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?"

This production will be performed at St. Stephen's Theater, 923 Ludlow Street in Center City Philadelphia. We regret that both the seating area and restrooms require navigating a flight of stairs and are therefore not accessible to patrons using a wheelchair; no elevator service is available. We are, however, able to accommodate patrons with early seating or other special needs; please let us know how we may assist you. Directions & parking»
