Albert Make Us Laugh - July 2002
Some would say Albert Nuttall, aged eleven, is backward - but he 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. A strange, touching and uplifting story - written to be enacted entirely by adults - that is engaging and theatrically innovative.
