Robin Williams, the Laughter and the Tears is an emotional rollercoaster ride through the life of one of the most loved stars on the planet. The play examines the highs and lows of Williams’ life including his addiction to cocaine and alcohol, as well as his daily battle with depression. Charting his meteoric rise to the top of the Hollywood A-list, this is a no-holds barred account of Williams’ life as he emerged from obscurity into the public glare of stardom.  As Williams himself said ‘You’re only given a little spark of madness.  You mustn’t lose it.’
