The Eastbourne Under Ground Theatre presents the ‘The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band Changed My Life Forever’ on Friday, March 8, 7.45pm.

Two wannabe rock stars Bob and Eric, played by Pat Abernethy and Dave Marsden, search for a last chance to inhabit that strange netherworld of glamour, adulation and madness that is the ‘entertainment’ business.

Bob and Eric meet at an audition which might give them their last chance of fame.

Both are only a song away from making their dreams come true - but Rock ‘n Roll can break your heart.

The story is driven along by songs from the Sixties that might lead them to the promised land: The Crying Game, Urban Spaceman, I’m the Pied Piper, San Francisco, Something in the Air, Spirit in the Sky, and many more.

Their dedication stands out, their history is uncovered and their future unfolds.

Written by Patrick Prior, directed by Jim Dunk on behalf of Isosceles in association with Useful Idiots, the play provides “an evening of real, effective theatre” (Piers Jackson – theatre critic).
