Frankie Vah
We all want something to believe in. It’s 1987 and Frankie Vah gorges on love, radical politics, and skuzzy indie stardom. But can he keep it all down? A verse play about love, loss and belief. Expect frenetic guitars, visceral verse, and a Morrissey-sized measure of heartache.

Black Rat Productions and Blackwood Miners’ Instit...
Dennis works for an undertaker. Hal’s old Mum has just died. Ludicrous slapstick meets dubious morals as the two young friends stash the proceeds of a bank robbery in Mum’s occupied coffin, all whilst trying to avoid a crazed policeman, a gold-digging nurse and a grieving widower. A glorious mix of lunacy, political incorrectness and macabre humour in this wickedly delicious farce. Sometimes shocking, sometimes baffling but at all times uproariously funny, this is a theatrical experience not to be missed! Supported by Arts Council Wales
