Unmissable. Emotional. Perfection. This beautiful piece of theatre. EVERYTHING THEATRE

An acclaimed production of the tale of a young David Bowie obsessive.

Martin is a boy with problems - an illness no one understands and a head full of sound and vision. So when an unexpected gift arrives on his birthday, Martin embarks on a thrilling journey in the footsteps of his obsession, leading him to discover some long-hidden truths about himself.

Powerful and touching, music and magic realism collide in this darkly funny and moving tour-de-force show, featuring a blistering Bowie soundtrack.
