Amy Morgan and Freddie Fox Join Tom Hollander in TRAVESTIES at Menier Chocolate Factory

Amy Morgan and Freddie Fox Join Tom Hollander in TRAVESTIES at Menier Chocolate FactoryAccording to the Daily Mail, Menier Chocolate Factory's major new revival of Tom Stoppard's TRAVESTIES - the first London revival in over 20 years - will star Amy Morgan and Freddie Fox opposite previously announced Tom Hollander.

Patrick Marber directs Hollander, as he returns to the stage to play Henry Carr. The production opens on 4 October, with previews from 22 September and runs until 19 November.

Tom Stoppard's dazzling comedy of art, love and revolution features James Joyce, Tristan Tzara and Lenin as remembered - and misremembered - by Henry Carr, a minor British diplomat in Zurich 1917. When Gwendolen and Cecily wander in from The Importance of Being Earnest, Henry's mind wanders too. He knows he was Algernon in a production in Zurich. But who was the other one? Fox will play poet Tristan Tzara, and Morgan will portray Gwendolen.

Morgan Starred in INADMISSIBLE EVIDENCE at the Donmar in 2011, and Fox appeared in the West End's THE JUDAS KISS in 2013. He has also taken the stage in ROMEO AND JULIET at the Crucible, HAY FEVER at the Noel Coward Theatre, and CAUSE CELEBRE and A FLEA IN HER EAR at the Old Vic.

TRAVESTIES opened at the Aldwych Theatre in 1974, directed by Peter Wood. It won the Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy, and a Tony Award and New York Critic's Circle Award for Best Play for its Broadway run at the Ethel Barrymore Theater.
