Parents, pills, mates and music are tearing young Jimmy’s tiny world apart, so he heads for Brighton to escape the fighting just as the Mods and Rockers hit town!

Quadrophenia, THE WHO’s classic album and later ‘the greatest British youth film ever made’ (NME), gets an epic live stage treatment at the Mercury Theatre this summer, as a company of the region’s most talented young performers joins forces with the Mercury’s very own professional production team to present this brand-new, high-octane rock opera. Get ready to fight for a ticket!
