travesties (1975)

Director Peter Wood, Royal Shakespeare Company
Author Tom Stoppard
Cast John Wood, Tom Bell, Robert Powell, Frank Windsor
An English old man recalls the time he lived in Zurich and met three important 20th-century personalities (James Joyce, Lenin, and Tristan Tzara), he recalls his perceptions and experienceswith these influential figures. Nevertheless, as he reminisces, his memory becomes prone to distraction, and instead of predictable historical biography, these characters are interpreted through the maze of his mind.
Robert's role (Tristan Tzara) has also been performed by John Hurt and Tim Curry.
I wasn't even born when this was staged! But if you have seen it or have read a review somewhere, don't forget to send it to me!
