2nd – 4th June – Ears on a Beatle
The Lost Boys are bringing their first rep to Kedleston Hall as a warm-up before taking the show to The Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
After a long legal battle, the US government published the FBI files on John Lennon through the Freedom of Information Act. This play is based on those files.
Two agents are assigned to place the ‘Subject’, John Lennon, under surveillance. As they proceed with their job of watching, documenting, and reporting on the life of someone else, their own lives become affected as their assignment lasts nearly 10 years until John Lennon’s death in 1980. This true chapter in American History is not simply a docu-drama but poses further questions concerning celebrity and world leader assassinations. Where do you draw the line between coincidence and conspiracy?
