Transferring to the Arts Theatre at the culmination of a third critically acclaimed tour, All Or Nothing follows four up-and-coming stars who possessed humour, attitude, passion and, above all, talent. They became the Small Faces and were rocketed into the big time, only to discover the path to success is paved with exploitation, betrayal and, ultimately, tragedy.
All Or Nothing is set to the backdrop of 1965 London, where a new sensation erupted out of the East End. The essence of all that was cool, it was, quite simply, Mod. All Or Nothing tells the story of the rise and demise of the Small Faces, the band who encapsulated all that was Mod – a unique blend of taste and testosterone, clothes-obsessed and street-wise – but most of all, a dedication to rhythm ‘n’ blues.
The musical celebrates the unique sound of this iconic Mod band, with all the Small Faces’ hits, including Whatcha Gonna Do About It, Tin Soldier, Lazy Sunday, Here Comes The Nice, Itchycoo Park and, of course, All Or Nothing.
Written, directed by, and starring, the award-winning actress Carol Harrison, All Or Nothing is endorsed and supported by many of those who feature in its story, including singer P.P. Arnold and Steve Marriott’s daughter, Mollie Marriott, who is the show’s vocal coach and creative consultant.
Harrison is probably best known for her role as Louise Raymond in EastEnders. Other television roles include seven years as Gloria in Brushstrokes, Loretta opposite Ray Winstone in Get Back, and Dorothy in two series of London’s Burning. Her theatre work includes Michael Rudman’s production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman at the National Theatre.
West End audiences should watch out, cos the Mods are coming… or maybe they just never went away!
