A shocking theatre show is set to rock Preston when it comes to The Ferret later this month.
Lee Mark Jones’ autobiographical show, A Rock ‘N’ Roll Suicide, is described as “brilliantly-shocking rock theatre”.
The show came to Preston as a work in progress in May 2019 as part of Lancashire Fringe Festival, but is set to return completed and updated after taking Edinburgh Fringe by storm.
There, critics were split by the show with one calling it “Marmite with crack on”, and reviews ranging from one-star to five-star.
In A Rock ‘N’ Roll Suicide, Jones retraces his life as a nearly-rock star, including tales about Lemmy, Slash, Axl Rose, Blondie, Joey Ramone and Joan Jett.
It’s a story of a man who comes to terms with himself after the diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder that, unknown to him, has defined his life.
Jones said: “There is deep soul-searching, self-questioning, recriminations, rage and confusion but also hope, clarity and understanding unfolds. Triumph over tragedy? You decide! From the Council estates of Kidderminster to Beverley Hills and back.
“I intend to attract a new kind of audience which does not usually go to the theatre; an audience craving strange journeys of darkness, horror, suspense, and wonder. All these thrills we will provoke into life, in the flesh, breathing and bleeding on stage, and right in your face.”
A Rock ‘N’ Roll Suicide will be performed on Thursday 26 March at The Ferret in Fylde Road. Support will come from local acoustic pop act, Masters of the Scene. Tickets are available from WeGotTickets.
