A warts-and-all portrait of the man who put the phrase 'sex and drugs and rock and roll' into the national psyche. Publicly, Ian Dury was a cheeky chappie and purveyor of saucy lyrics. Privately, he was a flawed maestro wrestling with demons. The show focuses on three key moments - at the peak of success, on the cusp of a comeback, and just after his death - and features seven of his most famous songs performed LIVE, including Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick and Reasons to be Cheerful.
