SUMMARY

Following a highly successful London run and acclaimed UK tour, From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads comes to Edinburgh - a celebration of David Bowie, one of the greatest musical figures of all time.

Martin, a young man who lives in a small Northamptonshire village, struggles with mental health issues. When he receives an unexpected gift on his 18th birthday, he goes to London following his obsession with Bowie where he is propelled on a surreal and thrilling journey. He performs on the stage where Ziggy Stardust was born, finds himself in Bowie's bedroom and is led on a treasure trail to discover the truth about himself and his family. What follows will change his life forever...

Director and writer Adrian Berry comments, After 75 performances and sold out shows all over the country, I'm delighted to bring From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads to the Edinburgh Fringe. In 1964, Bowie's first Scottish headline show was at ABC Cinema on Lothian Road and, over the years, he played there many times. He also made his theatrical debut at the Gateway Theatre, Leith Walk, in 1970. He loved Scotland and we can't wait to share our theatrical homage.

With a blistering soundtrack, and nods to Bowie's heroes and influences, From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads is a theatrical road movie, thrillingly evoking Bowie's London. The production features Alex Walton (the lead actor in Suede's Bowie homage 'Night Thoughts' film) and the voice of comedian Rob Newman as Bowie.

…this lament for the world’s misfits is given real clout by Walton, who plays a range of characters with impressive conviction but makes Martin so touchingly believable that you want to reach out a helping hand to stop him falling (The Guardian).
