Trial By Laughter at Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre
October 29 - November 3
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 (Monday 29 October – Saturday 3 November). 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 – about religious texts, the despotic government and the libidinous monarchy.
