The Last Laugh archiveIn this hilarious and moving satire, a beleaguered comedy troupe writer who, obliged by law to submit his latest script for government approval, has to go toe-to-toe with a newly appointed hard-nosed government censor. As he diligently attempts to rework his play, incorporating the censor's multitudinous and unconventional edits, the most unlikely partnership starts to flourish and the men become engaged in a 'conspiracy of two', crafting the funniest play they can imagine, whilst the spectre of the outside world threatens to destroy everything.

Author Richard Harris (adapted from an original play by Koki Mitani).
