Trevor Griffiths’ play about comedians who feed on prejudice and pander only to an audience’s ignorance, hatred, racism and sexism, was a big success in 1975 and a major turning point in the careers of Jonathan Pryce and Stephen Rea. It’s great to see it again in a splendid revival by Sean Holmes with an outstanding performance by David Dawson as a shavenheaded punk who is so bunged up with class hatred and bile that his comedy act silences all laughter. Dawson is absolutely riveting. Robert Tanitch
