About the show
“We’re getting the band back together!”
Long before there was magician and assistant, golfer and caddy or politician and embarrassment, there was rock star and the put-upon roadie. We meet Rocky Legend and roadie Dave in a sticky predicament – the four other band members have all died in tragic on-stage accidents… what’s to be done?
In Rock Cliché, two neurodivergent performers play with your senses through the medium of air guitar. And drums. And keyboard. Rock on!
