Set in Zurich in 1917, three prominent revolutionaries of the 20th century art and politics – modernist author James Joyce, communist revolutionary Vladimir Lenin and Dadaist founder Tristan Tzara – come together in the mixed up memories of Henry Carr, a British consular official. Stoppard blends history, literature and echoes of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest in this deliciously demanding play. (
