A summer music festival.  A bunch of 80s rockers on the comeback trail.  And an ageing lothario who is about to get his comeuppance. 

Shakespeare meets Spinal Tap as this classic middle class comedy gets the full OVO treatment with a live 80s soundtrack, tight trousers and big hair. 

Featuring 80s supergroup Spirit of Wantonness performing classics from the decade including Bonnie Tyler, Heart, Bon Jovi and Guns and Roses.

A riotous adaptation of what is often seen as the world’s first situation comedy by OVO‘s award winning Artistic Director Adam Nichols.
