Albert Makes us Laugh
by Jimmy Chinn
Directed by: David Goodwin
Meet Albert Nuttall, aged eleven. Some would say he is backward, and, at first glance, you'd agree - but Albert is special.
He is a poet and a visionary who, as he grows into manhood, inspires unexpected depths of emotion in other people, notably his classmate Primrose, whose glorious future as an actress fails to materialise, and the lost and lonely young schoolteacher, Janet Partington.
This strange, touching and uplifting story - written to be enacted entirely by adults - is engaging and theatrically innovative, as one has come to expect from the ever-popular Jimmie Chinn, author of 'Straight and Narrow'.
