Madness singer Suggs brings his one-man show, My Life Story In Words And Music, to Hall for Cornwall Truro and Queens Theatre Barnstaple in 2013.
Is the theatre world ready for the pandemonium, the one-man carnival, that is Suggs?!
Get up-close and personal with the Madness frontman on an emotional rollercoaster that’s part music, part personal vision, part music-hall extravaganza.
The death of Suggs‘s 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 to his childhood on the tough streets of Seventies Soho and his first appearance on Top Of The Pops at the age of 18…
Join him in the front seat on a unique journey through the ups and downs of an astonishing 30-year career, spanning pop music, radio, television, film and the meat-processing industry!
Witness Suggs cannonball to the heights of pop success, stumble and plummet down through the trap-door of failure, and then trampoline back up to catch the passing trapeze of showbusiness success.
The Times says ‘Suggs has natural comic timing and tells his story with wit and grace in this hugely enjoyable evening’, Time Out says ‘it is impossible not to be charmed by this one-man show’, while Mark Lawson in the Guardian called it ‘‘one of the most original and engaging shows I’ve seen’.
