Examines laughter among actors, among audience, and the interaction between the two. Exploring the many uses and effects of laughter in theatre, Weitz considers laughter as a tool of political resonance, as social commentary, and as one of the oldest rhetorical devices.
Artist Ruth Ewan invited Strood residents to share their skills and knowledge of the town’s heritage, hidden stories, myths past and present, to be weaved into a subversive pantomime for the town. This performance programme includes the full script, invited writings and local archive material.
Performed on 22nd December 2015.
