A one-man show blending wry comedy and music from a cult band comes to West Nottinghamshire College’s Create Theatre this week.

Half a Person: My Life as Told by The Smiths by Alex Broun, tells the story of William, a 20-something Londoner who drifts from coffee shop to bar, falling in love, self-obsessing and finding solace in The Smiths.

The show comes to Mansfield on Saturday, October 4, having shown at various venues across the UK.

William’s life is torn between conflicting loyalties to the girl of his dreams and his best friend. It’s an emotionally charged, coming-of-age story, blending wry comedy with music from The Smiths sung live.

The show was originally commissioned by Fly-On-The-Wall Theatre and Cross Cut theatre company has reworked this.
