SUGGS: MY LIFE STORY (15)

(Walker Theatre, Shrewsbury, Jan 17)

Is it a Drama? A Comedy? Or Music Hall dream?

The death of Suggs’ beloved cat on his 50th birthday triggers a personal quest to discover what happened to the father he never knew. Stunned by what he learns Suggs is taken back through his life to a childhood on the streets of Soho featuring music written by The Kinks, Ian Drury and, of course, his beloved Madness.

Director Julien Temple (The Great Rock n Roll Swindle, Absolute Beginners) takes a stage show, adds some drama, archive, animation and music, then shakes it all up for My Life Story where Suggs, takes a hilarious, yet moving, look back at his life in music & words.

My Life Story will be followed by a live musical Q&A direct from Koko in Camden Town, hosted by Keith Allen with director Julien Temple, and Suggs.

The screening starts at 8.30pm and tickets cost £14.50 – for more details, call 01743 281 281 or email mail@theatresevern.co.uk
