A slick and violent black comedy set in the Soho clubland of the 1950s. The hit debut play from the author of Jerusalem.

In the seedy gangster underworld of the rock'n'roll scene, club owners fight for control of Johnny Silver, the latest young sensation.


"A fabulous play... original, vibrant, gloriously entertaining."

- The Arts Desk

"The Royal Court's most dazzling main-stage debut in year."

- Guardian

"Mockingly male, highly comic and exhilartingly violent... explosive."

- WhatsOnStage

"The verbal menance of Harold Pinter [meets] the physical violence of Quentin Tarantino."
