Wild Laughter at Smock Alley theatre

Rosie Lavan, lecturer in the School of English at TCD, and Eleanor Lybeck, lecturer in English at the University of Oxford, presented a special performance event at Smock Alley theatre on 18 November. Wild Laughter, a unique one-woman show about the lives of a clown, is part of a larger research project about Albert James, a nineteenth-century stage clown who performed with the original D'Oyly Carte company, in London and in tours all over the world. The event was generously supported by an award from the Trinity Visual and Performing Arts Fund.
