Edgar Wright refrains from the usual tropes of the biopic and instead takes us through a fascinating journey chronicling the irreverent world of Ron and Russell Mael. Sparks’ music has spanned over 50 years, and consistently changed direction to electrifying effect. With producers such as Tony Visconti and Giorgio Moroder behind some of their biggest successes (‘The Number One Song in Heaven’, ‘Get in the Swing’) the duo’s influence has been felt across several generations of artists.

Tickets £20, concs £16 (Member pay £2 less).
