A co-production with Theatre Royal Bath.
AFTER JUSTICE FOR LAUGHING BOY BY SARA RYAN.
DIRECTED BY STEPHEN UNWIN.
25 May 2024
‘So much magic. So much love. So much laughter. So much work. So much rage. And so many tears.’
Connor is, well, Connor. He loves buses, Eddie Stobart, and Lego. He also has learning disabilities. When he dies an entirely preventable death in NHS care, his mum Sara can’t get a straight answer as to how it happened. But Sara and her family won’t stop asking questions and soon an extraordinary campaign emerges. Demanding the truth, it uncovers a scandal of neglect and indifference that goes beyond Connor’s death to thousands of others.
Both personal and political, Sara Ryan’s impassioned, frank, and surprisingly funny story bursts onto the stage for the first time. Writer and Director Stephen Unwin returns to Jermyn Street Theatre following his first play All Our Children and directing the sold out hit Farm Hall.
“Unwin gets first-rate performances from his cast.”
