Suggs: A King Cnut follows the Madness singer as he explores some of his greatest achievements through what went wrong. The show explores the thin line between success and failure, and how you can continue in showbusiness for so long.

Suggs is the stage name of Graham McPherson. He is best known as the lead singer of British ska band, Madness. During the 1970s, Madness released songs such as “It Must Be Love,” “House of Fun,” and “Wings of a Dove.”

Suggs: A King Cnut is co-written by McPherson, Toby Folett and Owen Lewis, with direction by Lewis.
