    "Great days, Zurich during the war. Refugees, spies, exiles, painters, poets, writers, radicals of all kinds. I knew them all."

    Henry Carr is an ordinary old man with a very unordinary past. With his mind still in the neutral hideaway of World War I Switzerland, he is the 'other one' from The Importance of Being Earnest. Taking refuge from the war, he meets many historical figures including Lenin, Joyce and Tzara, whom he recollects in a number of witty and comical memories.

    Join us as Henry Carr shares his past in a comedy in which you can never tell where memories end and imagination begins. Limericks and literary allusions abound, Travesties is a combination of political history, artistic debate and spoof reminiscence. Misunderstood memories, or just the wondering thoughts of an old man?

    "Zurich, by one who was there..."
