What is it?
For aging John McClachlan (Jeffrey Mayhew) sex, drugs and rock and roll meant sex, booze and world-class opera – a deadly combination. Having massively over-indulged in the first two he has bombed out of the third and we find him, washed up and fading fast, in a Blackpool bedsit. His only companion is young would-be stand-up comedian Stanley (John Garfield-Roberts), desperate to succeed, who has come to John thanks to a community service order following a racist attack. Watch the sparks fly as the hurt and confused wannabe tries to deal with the petulant brilliance of the has-been.
