Reasons to be Cheerful archiveIt's 1979. Ian Dury and the Blockheads' new single Reasons to be Cheerful (part 3) is climbing the charts. Labour has just lost the recent election to the Tories. Vinnie and his mates are big Ian Dury fans and they are desperate to see him at the Hammersmith Odeon but the gig is sold out. Vinnie will do anything to get tickets, but life is complicated. His dad is dying; the girl he loves is going out with his boss at the supermarket, and his own band never stops fighting. But the opportunity to get tickets for the gig arises and events take a surprising turn. Set during a time of political change and economic hardship, Dury's songs provide a powerful political and emotional backdrop to this coming-of-age tale.
Performers Nadia Albina (Janine), Stephen Collins (Colin), Stephen Lloyd (Vinnie), Daniel McGowan ( Dave), Garry Robson (Bobby), Karen Spicer ( Pat), Mat Fraser, Nixon Rosembert, John Kelly, Robert Hyman.
