“We’d love to go to New York eventually.”
WHO: Adrian Berry, Writer and director
WHAT: “The hugely acclaimed hit show tells the tale of a young David Bowie obsessive on a thrilling journey in the footsteps of his obsession, leading him to discover some long-hidden truths. What follows will change his life forever. Powerful and emotional, music and magic realism collide in this darkly funny and moving production featuring Alex Walton. The life of the pop fan is brilliantly dissected in this tale of unnatural teenage wildlife. ”

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
No. I brought a show about a bus driver who wants to be a porn star here, followed by a homage to 70s New York rock & Debbie Harry, then last year a 7 piece I wrote circus show about nostalgia and cheesy pop tunes. I’m a veteran.
Tell us about your show.
I wrote it. I produced it. I created it for an actor called Alex. It’s a love story to David Bowie and London. I met Alex when he was a fledgling 16 year old performer in Barnet. We didn’t speak for many years then a series of sad events brought us together again as friends. We’ve toured it around the UK – 75 performances so far. We’re touring again in the Spring to bigger spaces. We’d love to go to New York eventually.
