Taking the classic Smiths’ song Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me as their cue, director, writer and performer Ben Harrison and musician and composer David Paul Jones delve into the wonderful, troubled, exhilarating and oddly innocent decade - the 80s.

Entwining David’s original music and covers of the 80s classics (from The Smiths and Kate Bush to Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Tears For Fears, among others) with Ben’s short stories, all set in the 80s when both men were teenagers, the play is an evening of open-hearted, emotive and at times humorous dive back into the world of mix-tapes, Walkmans, fumbled early encounters, cider on the carpet, sleepovers and long nights and early mornings hanging out at the bus stop with nothing to do but smoke and dream…

This fantastic example of the beauty of gig theatre is a sequel to Ben Harrison’s brilliantly received collaboration with Amy Duncan in 2022, Undertow Overflow, which saw Ben performing on stage for the first time in 27 years.

The show is directed by Scott Johnston, written and performed by Ben Harrison with original music and covers by David Paul Jones, also featuring Justyna Jablonska on cello, Emery Hunter as BSL Signed performer for all performances and Simon Wilkinson on lighting design.
