ABOUT THE SHOW
Romantic. Lunatic. Tough Guy. Hypocrite. Can you see the real me?
Set in London and Brighton at the height of the Mod era, QUADROPHENIA is told through the eyes of Jimmy, a hedonistic style conscious teenager searching for a place to belong and a girl to love. Misunderstood by his parents and stuck in a dead end job, he sets off on a trip to Brighton that will change his life forever. This compelling coming of age story is brought to life in this original stage adaptation of the legendary album. The evocative world of sixties Britain provides a colourful backdrop to Jimmy’s journey. Pete Townshend’s stunning score pulsates with life and brilliantly captures the excitement of a nation on the brink of change. Rolling Stone magazine and VH1 have named Quadrophenia one of the 100 Greatest Albums of all Time. The album was released by The Who in 1973 and was followed by the iconic film in 1979. An exhilarating theatrical experience for rebels and adolescents of all ages!
