Comedians archiveA play set in Manchester about an evening class of would be comedians during the mid-70's. A time when Bernard Manning and co were the kings of comedy and Harold Wilson struggled to lead a country rocked by IRA bombs and wracked by industrial strife.

'Comedians' is one of the landmark plays of the 70's, a combination of tense drama, high entertainment and socio-political debate. Not suitable for children
Performers Matthew Kelly (Eddie Waters), David Dawson (Gethin), Mark Benton (Ged Murray), Keith Allen (Bert Challoner), Kulvinder Ghir (Mr Patel), Reece Shearsmith (Phil Murray), Billy Carter (George McBrain), Michael Dylan (Mick Connor), Simon Kunz (Sammy Samuels), Paul Rider (Caretaker/Concert Secretary).
Author Trevor Griffiths. Producer Lyric Hammersmith. Director Sean Holmes. Design Anthony Lamble. Lighting Simon Bennison. Sound Nick Manning.
