An acclaimed coming-of-age tale, featuring Ian Dury and the Blockheads' greatest hits with a scorching live band. Graeae's hit musical makes a triumphant return to London, following an acclaimed UK tour, standing ovations and mass sing-alongs all round.
It's 1979. Ian Dury and the Blockheads' new single Reasons To Be Cheerful (Part 3) is climbing the charts and the Tories have won the election. Vinnie and his mates are big Dury fans and they'd do anything to see him at Hammersmith. But the gig's sold out. When the opportunity to get tickets arises, events take a surprising turn.
'Rough, ready and bl**dy brilliant.' (Time Out)
