Travesties

Laura Hackman, guest director
By Tom Stoppard

Vladimir I. Lenin, James Joyce, and artist Tristan Tzara walk into a library—and the world is transformed. Tom Stoppard’s supremely literate comedy—with a wink and a nod to Oscar Wilde—imagines lively encounters between three revolutionaries who changed the world of politics, literature, and art. Presented by Illinois Theatre in association with the “1917/2017: Ten Days That Shook the World/Ten Days That Shake the Campus” initiative.
