Lichfield writer’s new plays take to the stage at the Garrick

Lichfield writer Phil Preece’s latest works are set to make their debut in the city.

The Mr Blue Sky and That’s Entertainment double-bill are being presented by Nobody’s Perfect Productions.

The double bill of ‘back-stage’ stories from the world of entertainment promise to be funny, clever, caustic and beautifully written.

The plays follow on from The Lichfield Blog contributor Phil’s previous successes including cult comedy House of Pain.

That's Entertainment

That's Entertainment

Mr Blue Sky…
They say if you can remember the sixties you weren’t there. Well ageing rocker Vince Meager was. And it’s true – he can’t. Or the seventies. Actually the eighties are a bit of a blur, and as for the nineties…

He’s still doing the rounds playing the old hits after nearly forty years, but when a young fan comes backstage to see him after the show he finds she’s looking for more than an autograph. And Vince begins to discover feelings his rock and roll lifestyle has left no time for – until now.

That’s Entertainment…
Joe and Lee are national TV stars at the very top of their game. It’s awards night, and the entertainment industry has come out in force to honour their prime-time success. But behind the scenes not everything is rosy in TV land. Because backstage Joe and Lee are locked in a battle their audience would never suspect.

The show stars Sean and Grahame, the two halves of popular singing duo The Rat Pack Boys.

The double bill is at the Lichfield Garrick on September 4 and 5 and tickets, priced £12 (£10 students) are available on 01543 412121 or by visiting the theatre’s website.
