Date Posted: 22/12/11
Reasons to be Cheerful, a musical tribute to Ian Dury, will tour the UK next year, covering 1,633 miles around the country.
It kicks off at Ipswich's New Wolsey theatre on Thursday February 9th, before moving on for slots in Cornwall and Hull.
The Watford Palace hosts the production in the middle of March, with Dundee then taking it on towards the end of the month.
Fans booking London theatre breaks can see the show at the Hackney Empire between Wednesday March 28th and Sunday April 1st before it arrives for a final stand in Nottingham.
Reasons to be Cheerful is part-gig, part-play and is written by Paul Sirett with music from Ian Dury and The Blockheads.
It will feature a whole host of hits associated with Dury, including Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll, Sweet Gene Vincent and Hit Me with your Rhythm Stick.
A review by the Times said that theatre fans will be treated to "brilliant music" and "moments of crude punk genius".
