Incestuous dysfunction, navel-gazing narcissism, bitter rivalries and the occasional glimmer of true brilliance can all be found in Paul Brenner's songwriting class, a perfect cross-section of the Chicago music scene. When a former student and pop star arrives to judge the wannabe musicians in a contest, stakes go through the roof as they clamber for the attention and stardom they think they deserve. The darkly comic pop opera features songs by Iggy Pop, Oasis, Simple Minds, New Order, Happy Mondays and more, plus an original score. From the writer behind Trainspotting, Creatives delves into the rock 'n' roll lifestyle and what they'll do to get it at The Edge Theater in Chicago.
