A 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. A time when Bowie, Abba and Bay City Rollers were topping the charts and fashion was not retro-chic, just embarrassing. '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 childrenPerformers Ron Moody, David Tennant, George Layton, Martin Freeman, Billy Carter, Stephen Kennedy, Vincenzo Nicoli, Roy North, Kish Sharma, Richard Simpson, Nicholas Tennant.
