Trial By Laughter

GOOD SEATS AVAILABLE FOR THE FOLLOWING PERFORMANCES:
Wednesday Evening

Friday Evening
Saturday Evening

Following critical acclaim for The Wipers Times, Ian Hislop and Nick Newman have once again taken inspiration from real life events for their new play Trial By Laughter.

William Hone, the forgotten hero of free speech, was a bookseller, publisher and satirist. In 1817, he stood trial for ‘impious blasphemy and seditious libel’.

The only crime he had committed was to be funny. Worse than that he was funny by parodying religious texts. And worst of all, he was funny about the despotic government and the libidinous monarchy.

There will be a post-show Question and Answer session with Ian Hislop and Nick Newman on Tuesday evening.

 

Make the most of your visit to the theatre with our two-course Pre-Show Lunch or Supper in Matcham's Restaurant for just £13.90, or avoid the queues in the bar by booking a space in our exclusive VIP Directors' Lounge for only £12 per person, including nibbles and a glass of bubbly.

We're sorry but there are no upcoming dates for this event.
