Turn your home into a theatre for the night

Play the music loud and pogo along from the best seats in the house - your front room!!

When a routine check-up leads to a startling diagnosis, Andy decides it’s time to put the band back together, to crank up the amps, and party like its 1978! Why not re-form the legendary Oxy & the Morons, who burned fiercely before exploding in a riot of rivalry, jealousy and bitter betrayal? Andy’s mission involves twisting arms, healing wounds and putting his family and friendships back together. But can that new wave spirit of DIY defiance be rekindled over thirty years later? Can you still pogo when your knees go? Will they play their trademark version of It’s Not Unusual as an encore? With a machine gun playlist of original songs and a powerful life affirming message, this affectionate look back at the days of teen spirit suggest we could all do with some of that garage band power - right now.

This brand new musical is fast, furious and very funny. Written by Mike Peters (The Alarm), Steve Allan Jones and Paul Sirett (Reasons to be Cheerful, Mods and Rox), it has life affirming theme that literally helped save a persons life during it’s first production run at the New Wolsey Theatre in Ipswich, and by premiering online during the lockdown, it might just save even more as, through association with the cancer charities Love Hope Strength and DKMS, there will be an online bone marrow donor drive taking place throughout the evening.

Audiences Love OXY

Catchy, fast and furious... Whether an old punk, a new punk or merely a combined music and theatre fan; this show definitely strikes a chord, as the standing ovation proved. — Molly Richardson, GrapevineLIVE

The show is pitch perfect, the dozen new songs written by Mike Peters and Steve Allan Jones, are loud and memorable and a great time is guaranteed for all — Andrew Clarke, Ipswich Star

Swift, slick, and sparse, with scene-shifting musical numbers, running the gamut from raucous punk to slightly more raucous punk, performed live on a rolling bandstand. — Fergus Morgan, The Stage

• “Fabulous show. Superb cast ... — Audience Member

• “Even if loud music is not your thing this was a fabulous show and well worth watching.” — Audience Member

• “Full of punk attitude, humour, plot twists and terrific acting. Excellent.” — Audience Member
