Thursday 25 February, 7.30 pm, Pavilion Room TERRY EAGLETON ON THE COMEDIANS BY TREVOR GRIFFITHS


The great literary theorist examines the celebrated 1975 play in which a stand up comic Eddie Waters rents a room above a Manchester pub to teach six pupils his alternative vision of comedy. Partly a reaction to the crass humour of Granada TV’s The Comedians, Richard Eyre described it as ‘the greatest play of the 1970s’. Part II of the Northern Literature and Culture series.
