After a series of successful performances and productions over the last few months, Sunderland Stages are rounding off their season with a packed night of music and theatre in Weekend Rockstars. Part live theatre performance, part gig, the Hull-based theatre company Middle Child tell the story of Terry, who’s having the worst week ever. He’s just lost his job, his girlfriend is going to uni in London and he’s just killed his dealer’s cat (it’s a long story). When his world begins to fall apart, Terry does the only logical thing he can: he becomes a rockstar.

Weekend Rockstars is billed as a concept album for the stage, swapping intervals for dances, scenes for tracks and props for projection. Proudly produced in Hull, the performance is honest, energetic and unapologetic in its portrayal of a young man who just wants to live for the weekend.

The production at North Shore also features a special gig by local glam rock revivalists Hyde & Beast, who’ll be bringing their own rock star flair and Mackem charm to the night.

Weekend Rockstars comes to North Shore, Sunderland on Friday 29th May.
