The Last Laugh

Author(s): Richard Harris, adapted from an original play by Kōki Mitani
Company: The Theatre at the Tabard

A beleaguered comedy writer meets a stubborn government censor with no sense of humour in repeated attempts to gain approval for his new play.

As the writer jumps through the censor’s hoops, a new play emerges while the two very different men come to understand one another and build an unlikely bond.

Set in a dystopian state with the war outside creeping ever closer, this witty play explores what comedy is and why it is so important to laugh.
