Eugene & Elvis

Eugene & Elvis is one man’s story which brings together three of the protagonist’s true passions; music, theatre and family. The story aims to take an audience on a journey with Eugene (the actor’s brother) as he describes the way in which the songs of great artists like Elvis can transport us to our most significant memories, many of which are woven into the narrative with real recordings made by Eugene from the thousands of hours of cassette recordings he made. The play is an exploration of the universal challenges of the human condition - our need for love and to leave a legacy for the next generation. It is a true account; genuine, authentic and above all, worth your while!
