Adrian Berry’s acclaimed play, which tells the tale of a young David Bowie obsessive, returns to theatres across the United Kingdom.
From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads tells the story of Martin, a boy with an illness no-one understands and a head full of sound and vision. So when an unexpected gift arrives on his birthday, Martin embarks on a thrilling journey in the footsteps of his obsession, leading him to discover some long-hidden truths about himself. What follows will change his life forever.
Powerful and touching, music and magic realism collide in this darkly funny and moving production featuring Alex Walton and comedian Rob Newman as the voice of David Bowie. With a blistering soundtrack, the life of the pop fan is dissected in this tale of unnatural teenage wildlife.
This brand new and updated solo production originally had sold out runs in London and Edinburgh, and was later translated and produced in Germany.
From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads will play at Waterloo East Theatre in London, from 18 October – 6 November 2016, before embarking on a national tour across the UK into 2017.

Moving and touching, it blew me away. I cried my eyes out. You forget you’re in a theatre, and you can’t ask for much more than that”
