The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band Changed My Life Forever is probably the longest-titled play I've blogged about so far. A poignant tale of tribute act wannabees, the play explores the unglamorous depths of the music business. Written by Patrick Prior and directed by Jim Dunk, the Isoceles production was first performed in 2008.
Dedicated musicians Bob (Pat Abernethy) and Eric (Dave Marsden) meet at the audition which might just be their last chance to break into the big time. Both are only one song away from achieving their dreams, but Rock 'n' Roll can break your heart. As the audience discovers their history, Bob and Eric's future unfolds. Pat Abernethy and Dave Marsden perform several songs from the 1960s during the play, including The Crying Game, Urban Spaceman, San Francisco, Something In The Air and Spirit In The Sky.
