Greg Wohead: Elvis Comeback Special

Jam sessions, patter with a Southern drawl, big dance numbers and a bit of sweat

“Not to be missed.”

- Lyn Gardner, The Guardian (on The Ted Bundy Project)
this is a re-enactment of Elvis Presley's 1968 Comeback Special. Sort of. It's an experiment in time drag; wearing another time as drag and dragging another time into the present. What happens if the Comeback comes back? Like a half-remembered dream or two mirrors facing each other or repeating a word so much it loses its meaning. Comeback Special is a double negative. It’s not the original, but it’s not not. Greg welcomes Elvis fans, theatre fans and anyone who thinks this peculiar re-enactment might be fun. He certainly does. Over 14s only. Valid ID may be required. Please ring 020 7739 6176 before booking if you have access requirements.
