SID, of Sid Vicious Fame, at the Arts Theatre

Leon Fleming's punk-rock one-man play will run at the Arts Theatre early this Autum. Sid Vicious is about hero worship and transfers into London's West End after a UK tour, starring Dario Coates (Coronation Street, ITV; Another Country, Chichester Festival Theatre & Trafalgar Studios West End) and directed by Scott Le Crass (Cancel the Sunshine, The Hope Theatre).

Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious may have been a junkie and an alcoholic (and, let's be honest, not much of a musician), but he was PUNK. More than anyone else at the birth of the punk movement, he kicked against the system and spat in the face of polite conformity. For Craig, living in a world that just eats people up and spits them out as mindless zombies, a place where people leave him and are never seen again, this long-dead anti-hero is all he has to keep him on the straight and narrow, to keep him from joining all the other sheep. And he's not having a good day.

This new one-man play runs for just 50 minutes and stars Dario Coates, who is best known for playing Alex Neeson on long-running soap opera Coronation Street. Sid is directed by up-and-coming young director Scott Le Crass, who has been directing new work in London's Off West End for over 8 years. The show comes to London after a successful UK tour, with sellout performances and great critical acclaim.
