The critically acclaimed, award-winning Edinburgh Festival sell-out production of Philip Ridley‘s new play TONIGHT WITH DONNY STIXX transfers to London’s newest, hottest venue – The Bunker, carved out of a carpark beneath the Menier Chocolate Factory – for a strictly limited season.
“Faultless one man blockbuster… Fling people aside to see it.” – The Observer ★★★★
“Queasily insightful on celebrity culture” – The Times ★★★★
Donny has committed an act that shocked everyone. Tabloids called him The Most Hated Boy Alive. But Donny doesn’t want forgiveness. All Donny wants is… his own television show.
Evening Standard Award-nominated director David Mercatali (Blue Heart, Cargo) and Time Out, Evening Standard and Critics’ Circle Award-winning playwright Philip Ridley (Mercury Fur, Dark Vanilla Jungle, The Fastest Clock in the Universe, The Pitchfork Disney, Vincent River) reunite for this tour-de-force.
Powered by a Stage Award-winning performance from Sean Michael Verey (Pramface, Radiant Vermin), TONIGHT WITH DONNY STIXX is a compelling one man show about our obsession with celebrity and the dangers of delusion.
TONIGHT WITH DONNY STIXX is brought to London by Metal Rabbit, whose other recent hits include Cargo at the Arcola Theatre. It was originally produced by Supporting Wall at Pleasance Courtyard in Edinburgh. Note: The age recommendation for this show is 14+.
For the post-show Q&A following the 80-minute evening performance on Thursday 17 November 2016, I’ll be joined by author Philip Ridley, director David Mercatali and star Sean Michael Verey.
