Harrogate Theatres: Last Laugh Screening

November 21st, 2017

lastlaugh17aWhen your life’s a joke it’s time to stand up!

The story follows a college lecturer, Martin Dawson played by Nick Figgis and his hope to escape from obscurity by having a screenplay made into a film. We see his relationship with his ex-wife and children, his mistress and film agent along with his sometimesoverbearing parents. We witness his eventual breakdown during a cathartic rant on an open mic spot at a local comedy club in front of a packed house. During the performance we see flash backs to a memorable trip to Whitby with all the pathos and comic talent you could expect from Godber as our hero endures an insane weekend with his parents. We have a UK theatrical release scheduled for October2017.

Written by John Godber. Directed by Daniel Coll. Produced by John Danbury and Daniel Coll. Executive Producers: John Godber, Clive Waldron, Sir Rodney Walker and Paul Sewell. Director of Photography Dave Thorp.

With Nick Figgis, Toyah Willcox, Jane Thornton, John Godber, Amy Thompson, Ann Micklethwaite and Paul Lavers.

Original music by Phil Codd, Si Wright and Toyah Willcox.
