ABOUT

Spend a week in the chaotic life of 23-year-old Mickey Vallance that will make you mad, sad and glad that you did.

Stuck in a job stuffing teddy bears, skint and living above a brothel with his girlfriend Ruby, he rants about all the things that annoy him, how shit life can be and how he is going to follow his secret dream and, at the same time, start a revolution from his bed. But can he pull it off?

Who knows… but one thing’s for sure, he ain’t going to go quietly thanks to the banging soundtrack to this life-changing week.

PRESS & REVIEWS

Reviews (for previous work):

For Joe Walsh:

“Another performance of special note is that from Joe Walsh, who plays Ian Curtis. Having seen Walsh take on the character of Curtis for the first time last year, I was impressed then with the enthusiasm and deft down-to-earthness with which Walsh brought to the character. 2019’s performance however showed a whole new amplified intensity to his approach, emphasizing both how animated Ian Curtis was as a man and friend, but also the turbulence of his angst and exhaustion”
Visit Manchester​

“Walsh working his body and voice into the feel and thunder of the sound, right down to Curtis’ frantic, haunting dance style”
Visit Manchester

“Walsh’s performance as Curtis is very real – the mannerisms that Curtis displayed on stage were very close to reality and his mood off stage was captured equally well”
Reviewer Number Nine

“Joseph Walsh as young Willie Mossop superbly brings over an unambitious underling gradual transformation in an amusing way, worthy of the great Norman Wisdom”
Manchester Salon
