“A joke releases the tension, says the unsayable, any joke pretty well. But a true joke, a comedians joke, has to do more than release tension, it has to liberate the will and the desire, it has to change the  situation.”

In one of Trevor Griffiths’ most successful plays this company from The Actors Temple are questioning the labels that divide us – class, race, religion, nationality… Step out of the class room and into the social club; this production turns immersive and brings the audience up close and personal to the world of comedy.

The setting is a Secondary school in Manchester. It’s the last evening of the night school course with the graduation performance, and there’s a comedy agent in the house. Will these budding comedians climb the first wrung on the ladder of fame? And what are they prepared to sacrifice to get there, in this visceral struggle between entertainment and art?
