‘A Rock 'n' Roll Suicide’ was a surprise hit at Edinburgh Fringe 2019!
Ziggy Stardust takes us on a tragical Mystery Tour through the life of a nearly-was Rock star, Gypsy Lee Pistolero, AKA Lee Mark-Jones! This one man show plays out against a backdrop of videos and scenes from his early life, our jaded, ageing rocker sings along with his young pretty self and belts out songs from Punk to the Present, from an initially glamtastic, then tragic Rock N Roll career.
It’s a tale of anarchy, rage, sadness and laughter.
It’s a struggle between damnation and salvation.
Its story of a man who comes to terms with himself after the diagnosis of a condition that unknown to him, has defined his life.
Join us on this autobiographical roller coaster and see for yourselves what Ziggy Stardust is finally revealed to be.
