Trial by Laughter

January 22nd - January 27th

 

IAN HISLOP AND NICK NEWMAN’S
TRIAL BY LAUGHTER

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.

The cast includes Helena Antoniou (Lady Hertford), Philippe Edwards (Sidmouth), Jeremy Lloyd (Prince Regent), Peter Losasso (Cruickshank), Nicholas Murchie (Justice Abbott/Duke of York), Joseph Prowen (Hone), and Eva Scott (Lady Conyngham/Sarah)

There will be a post-show talk with Ian Hislop and Nick Newman after the 7:30pm performance on Tuesday 22nd January. Free to all ticket holders.

 

A Watermill Theatre production.

★★★★ “A David-V-Goliath celebration of dissent” Daily Telegraph
★★★★ “Irritatingly good” Daily Mail
★★★★ “Another winner for Hislop and Newman” WhatsOnStage
