Welcome… to Tomorrow’s World. 

The Children of the 70’s…saw life change radically. Now you can too.

From the creator of
The Spirit of Woodstock

The next chapter…
From Space Invaders to Star Wars, glam rock to punk, flares to safety pins, Wilson to Thatcher, Apollo to Skylab & The Shuttle, OPEC to queues at petrol stations.

From Bloody Sunday to Power Sharing, power cuts to 3 day weeks,
disco… to the winter of discontent.

From main frames to Apples, post strikes to email.
Old money to decimal, past VAT, into the EU & up the butter mountains.

From The Cold War to the Cod Wars to The Godfather and more….
…with music, soundscapes & platform shoes to remind you of good times, & bad.

A highly dynamic & energetic collage of the stories, the time, the people, the music.

A theatrical romp through the 70s.
An exciting smorgasbord of theatrical vignettes,
a whistle-stop tour of your memories and of modern history.

Multi-Award-winning Jonathan Brown plays, in lightning-fast succession,
65 distinct moments from the 70s, the people, the events, the musicians, the upheavals, the iconic junctures that shaped our world.
Bathed in the soundscapes and music of the times, enhanced by the audience’s memories and imaginations,
Jonathan takes you back into a world that was both revolutionary and challenging. Funny, poignant, moving. 

Outstanding Show
“masterly…such integrity….both hilarious and chilling by turns…extraordinary fluency… mesmerising…why (isn’t) this virtuoso writer, director & performer already a national icon? There’s no greater writer/performer working in Brighton, or Sussex.” Fringe Review. May 2022

“Our audience loved you once again!”
Claudia Pepler, Director, Merlin Theatre
“Wow, what a tour de force …thoughtful, clever, quick, moving, funny, engaging …a really brilliant performance from a shape shifting genius …Go Jonathan, go, and please don’t stop.” Jane Flood, Storyteller.

“We went back to the fabulous 70’s for a beautifully observed commentary on the events with a great mix of music. It was emotional & some of the events are still current! Thank you for a great evening” Carol Kennedy.

5 Stars “…an exceptionally crafted & masterfully executed epic.”
The Lewesian on “The Spirit of Woodstock”
