About All The Fun Of The Fair
"Roll on up, see the main attraction, get your money ready, let's take a ride..."
David Essex and Boogie Nights creator Jon Conway invite you to a roller coaster ride of a musical, underscored by a helter- skelter of David Essex hits and album favourites.
Inspired by David Essex’s debut album ‘All The Fun Of The Fair’, as the words of the title song suggest David plays fun fair owner Levi Lee, recently widowed and father of a rebellious teenage son. Danger and mysticism lurk in the future, as predicted by the gypsy fortune teller who is in love with Levi. This moving and contemporary story with a heartbreaking twist, reaches out to every parent and anyone who has ever been torn in love.
Dodgems and motorbikes, crafty cons and candy floss, fairground horses and fights, along with romance and rock and roll bring out the carnival atmosphere, but beware… all is not always fun at the fair!”
