Venture Wolf


Bruised egos and broke, two forgotten rock stars try and record the album that makes sense of their lives

In a drunken haze, two former rock stars awake after a night of heavy drinking. They come from different eras, one full of angry 80’s angst, the other a new millennium rocker hell bent on making life one long party. Finding themselves in the same crowded pub, their nights merged as both sought desperately to befriend a record executive they hope could save their long since forgotten careers.  When the morning arrives, these new drinking buddies quickly descend into bruised animosity, yet their careers have just been thrown an unlikely lifeline. The record exec placed a bet he could get them a hit album, but there’s a catch; they have to record it together.

Wrapped up in a caricature of who they used to be, can they rediscover who they really are and confront the hurt of a life never quite fulfilled? Why is King A always angry and is Kieran Kurtz really as carefree and enthusiastic as he likes to seem? Have they spent so long trying to appear real that they have become detached from what made them successful all those years earlier?

This hilarious, poignant two-man show is full of laughter, sing-a-longs and the anarchic hope that rock and roll should never die. With tales of excess, stupidity and dark secrets lurking beneath the surface, join two naughty boys who still refuse to join the real world.
