|Oxford Theatre Guild, Simpkins Lee Theatre.|
|15 December 2010A theatre review by Julia GasperWhatever else you are doing between now and next Saturday, drop it and ring Ox. 305305 immediately to book for TRAVESTIES at the Simkins Lee Theatre at Lady Margaret Hall. This hilarious show is unmissable and the funniest thing you will see all Christmas season.
Stoppard’s play, written in 1974, has been called surrealist, an example of Theatre of the Absurd, and a “philosophical farce”. This is sophisticated humour, full of paradox and scintillating wit alongside doggerel verse and bits of utterly silliness. If we wish, we can see it as a serious exploration of the difficulty of making sense of life and creating a synthesis of its disparate elements. http://www.oxfordprospect.co.uk/TRAVESTIES.html
