Birdland

BY SIMON STEPHENS 

3 OCTOBER – 4 NOVEMBER 

 

 

“All I wanted was to sing songs to people. I never wanted any of this

Paul is a rock god. Everybody knows his face, his name. He can have whatever he wants. He can fuck whoever he wants. Buy anything. Eat anything. Drink anything. Smoke anything. Go anywhere.

But as his latest European tour grinds to its end, the mega-fame and limitless money that go hand-in-hand with rock stardom are messing with his head, the pressure is starting to get to him and Paul is set to implode at any moment.

A sexy and revealing exploration of fame and celebrity, from the award-winning author of Punk Rock and the stage adaptation of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

“A play with guts, compassion and cauterizing honesty. It’s unmissable.” Time Out
