Life as a Bowie fan subject of acclaimed MET drama
13th, January, 2018
A new play dramatizing the life of a young David Bowie fan, From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads, is set to be performed in the MET Studio this February.
Martin lives at home with his mother, his father having departed soon after his birth and never seen again. Martin has inherited his father’s obsession with David Bowie and writes letters to him, living in a world of books, music and fantasy to which he escapes. Martin also rarely eats.
On his 18th birthday his mother gives him an envelope which his father requested she do. Inside Martin discovers a letter Bowie had written to his father, and a map with instructions.
Martin embarks on a journey across London to discover the birthplace, haunts and history of his hero and retrace his father’s footsteps, before making a final, chilling discovery at the bank of the River Thames.
From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads is a contemporary theatrical road movie with a host of characters, songs, humour and a brilliant Bowie soundtrack.
