Genre(s): Comedy tHe dYsFUnCKshOnalZ!
In 1977 when Punk was at its height, Billy Abortion’s band mates left him bleeding to death in a Copenhagen hotel room. In 2007 Billy is back from the dead and stacking shelves. There was no way tHe dYsFUnCKshOnalZ! would ever reform. Until now…
30 years on from their notorious split, an American corporation wants to pay the band a small fortune for their punk anthem Plastic People, but everyone has to be in on the deal. So how much will it take for the angriest man in music to sell out?
tHe dYsFUnCKshOnalZ! is Mike Packer’s third play for The Bush Theatre, following A Carpet, a Pony and a Monkey (2002) and Card Boys (1999).
"Hilarious and touching… a show that constantly combines the crude, the comic and the unexpectedly affecting… an authentically grubby, gritty production that is often achingly funny, and the performances are outstanding" Daily Telegraph
"Sheer wit, warmth and manic energy… Tamara Harvey’s exuberant production is riotously funny… Whether they are squabbling, snorting, boozing or thrashing out Mia Soteriou’s cannily-observed score, the cast are a scream" The Times
“Mike Packer's glorious new play... a joyous, entertaining, thought-provoking evening” Sunday Times
“Cryingly funny… I laughed a great deal” Independent on Sunday
