Just a few months since David Bowie’s passing, Adrian Berry’s new production From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads is a homage and celebration of one of the greatest musical figures of all time. 

A young man with an illness no-one can understand receives an unexpected gift on his 18th birthday, propelling him on a surreal and thrilling journey to London. He performs on the stage where Ziggy Stardust was born, finds himself in Bowie’s bedroom and is led on a treasure trail to discover the truth about himself and his family. What follows will change his life forever… 

From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads is a theatrical road movie, thrillingly evoking Bowie’s London. With a blistering soundtrack, and nods to Bowie’s heroes and influences, From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads is a fitting companion piece to Bowie’s own Lazarus at King’s Cross Theatre, which runs alongside it in October. 

The production features Alex Walton (the lead actor in Suede’s Bowie homage ‘Night Thoughts’ film) and the voice of comedian Rob Newman as Bowie. 

Director and writer Adrian Berry comments,

 I wanted to celebrate Bowie’s art and to take the audience on a journey to where it all began. In bringing Bowie’s history into the 21st century, we can see how his fans today relate to him and why he remains such an enduringly important figure in popular culture. This show will also be a celebration of the London that formed Bowie,
creating his many unique characters and astonishing musical direction.
