    A JOKE   











Aug 2-7, 9-13, 15-20, 22-26

Sylvester McCoy (Dr Who, Hobbit), Robert Picardo (Star Trek Voyager, Stargate Atlantis) and John Bett (Shallow Grave, Tess) star in Dan Freeman’s hit play exploring our attitudes to humor and life. An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman find themselves in a void and must work out who and where they are. Are they constituents of a story, or is the joke on them? They approach the world respectively with fear, optimism and acceptance and gradually begin to solve the mystery of their own existence and ours. ‘Sharp, satirical, effortlessly amusing’ (Stage). ‘Hilarious… exhilarating theater’ (International Times).
