Metal Rabbit presents
TONIGHT WITH DONNY STIXX
by Philip Ridley
Metal Rabbit, in association with The Bunker Theatre, present the London transfer of the Edinburgh Festival sell-out TONIGHT WITH DONNY STIXX by Philip Ridley at brand new venue The Bunker.
Donny has committed an act that shocked everyone. Tabloids called him The Most Hated Boy Alive. But Donny doesn't want forgiveness. All Donny wants is… his own television show.
Philip Ridley's black comedy follows the wannabe magician Donny. Donny’s life is turned upside down when has to leave his family home and move in with Aunt Jess. In the upheaval young Donny takes refuge in his ever-expanding magic act; inspired by his hero the Remarkable Ritchie, he knows he can fulfil his purpose in life and become the world's greatest entertainer! But before too long Donny's grasp on reality begins to waver and the act becomes far more dangerous and life-changing than anyone could have anticipated.
Director David Mercatali (BLUE HEART), playwright Philip Ridley (MERCURY FUR) and performer Sean Michael Verey (RADIANT VERMIN) reunite for this award-winning tour-de-force about our obsession with celebrity and one young man’s quest to be remembered, no matter the cost.
