Kurt & Sid by Roy Smiles at Trafalgar Studios from 9 Sep 2009 with Danny Dyer & Shaun Evans

Kurt & Sid, a new play by Roy Smiles, opens at the Trafalgar Studios Two on 14 Sep 2009, following previews from 9 Sep - booking to 3 Oct 2009.

Directed by Tim Stark , and starring Danny Dyer (Sid Vicious) & Shaun Evans (Kurt Cobain).

Roy Smiles play explores exactly what it means to dice with death when being alive proves to be all too painful and peace seems elusive…

April 1994. A man sits alone in an attic extension on the cusp of becoming a Seattle suicide statistic. This man is no ‘number and name’ to be reported in a local newspaper. He is an icon, albeit a reluctant one. The frontman of Nirvana is about to pull the trigger of the gun in his hand and join the leagues of rock star deaths down the ages. Without invitation, Kurt has the curious company of a man purporting to be the Sex Pistol’s Sid Vicious, Kurt’s hero.

Whether he is a ghost, a figment of Kurt’s imagination, an hallucination, a dream, or a Punk impersonator remains to be seen as the two musicians, trade quips and quotes about the emptiness of fame, a mutual understanding of drug addiction and self-destruction.

Looking for the best seats...
