...industrial, thumping, brooding, banging. A delicious cacophony- The Stage, UK
In a nutshell:
Triple threat theatre / Laneway lovers must-see / Homage to great 20th century rock
Fusing rock, industrial and electronic, The Great Downhill Journey of Little Tommy is a live rock concert and theatre performance dripping with front man cool – think The Hives sound tracking a Tim Burton tale.
In this classic coming-of-age story we follow Tommy, a teenager who leaves his home on a hilltop to see the sea for the first time. On his way he meets several shady characters who don’t belong in the city. Music genres change gears as each new character makes their entrance while intricate live hand-drawn illustrations weave their way across the backdrop to create a magical atmosphere.
The brainchild of Belgian award-winning musicians Jonas Vermeulen and Boris Van Severn, and recipient of the Scotsman Fringe First Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015, Tommy is an energetic whirlwind performance of sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll that thumps the soul.
"This show has achieved cult status at Summerhall. No wonder. Spellbinding." Read the Musical Theatre Review of The Great Downhill Journey of Little Tommy here.
