Tom Stoppard's Travesties creates a fictional debate between three revolutionary artists--Dadaism's Tristan Tzara, James Joyce, in the throes of writing Ulysses, and Lenin--pre-Bolshevik uprising in a surrealistic setting of 1917 Zurich. These three men, plus British consul official Henry Carr, in reality, were all living in Zurich in 1917. Stoppard takes this historical coincidence, sets it against a rewrite of The Importance of Being Earnest, and reveals the entire story through the sometimes lucid, but more often faulty memory of the aging Carr.
