★★★★ “a bouncy online version of David F Ross’s comedy caper novel about an Ayrshire band that once had an unexpected number one hit.” // Thom Dibdin, All Edinburgh Theatre

A riotous, irreverent and wickedly funny 50 minute film: created online, under lockdown.

When a young Ayrshire band miraculously hits the big time with the smash hit record of 1984, international stardom beckons. That’s despite having a delusional teenage manager propelled by a dark, malign voice in his head … Can Max Mojo’s band of talented social misfits repeat the success and pay back the mounting debts accrued from an increasingly agitated cartel of local gangsters? Or will they have to kidnap Boy George and hope for the best?

This new production, written by critically acclaimed Scottish Author David F Ross, is based on his internationally successful novel, “The Rise and Fall of the Miraculous Vespas”, and has been created and filmed as a response to these strange times. Directed by Stuart Hepburn. Starring Tam Dean Burn, Sarah McCardie and Colin McCredie.
