I Heart Michael Ball

I Heart Michael Ball

It’s the 10th bi-annual meeting of the Michael Ball Appreciation Society and Alex, their founder, has a special surprise to mark the occasion.

Alex has been obsessed with Michael Ball since he was a young boy, when he first heard The Very Best of Michael Ball in his brother’s car. Just as the conductor directs his musicians, Alex orchestrates a fiendish plan to finally meet the blue-eyed boy from Bromsgrove.

I Heart Michael Ball is a 60 minute (no interval), interactive, one man show exploring grief and obsession.

I Heart Michael Ball is Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. www.artscouncil.org.uk
