Trial by Laughter Summary


Trial by Laughter by Ian Hislop

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.


A Watermill Theatre production.
