A Secret Life promises to be full of spectacular musical performances.

Fans of David Bowie will be fools to miss out on a new piece of musical theatre written and directed by Wexford writer Michael Way.

'A Secret Life' is a compelling piece of work based on a teenage runaway who finds solace in Bowie's music. The play follows the life of Eva as she finds connections between her own life and the lyrics of the eclectic singer.

The show has already proven itself to be a big hit, with preview audiences describing it as 'unique, progressive and compelling'. A powerful interpretation of Bowie's work by Secret Life, it promises non-stop live music, visual art, performance and film.

Of course, you do not need to be a fan of Bowie to enjoy this play. A Secret Life has a wide appeal, with people travelling from all over for its premiere in Wexford Arts Centre on October 15. Tickets cost €12.50, with the show kicking off at 8 p.m.
