Description

A funny, touching and self-deprecating account of growing up in 1970s Wolverhampton. Ian looks back at his deluded teenage years. Being a trainee butcher at the Co-op is only a temporary situation before he reveals his true artistic talents to the world. No careers officer or personnel manager is going to stop him producing his rock album, publishing his poetry or mounting his first exhibition. A world of awkward romantic relationships, Sex Pistols, Crossroads and Angel Delight. An honest and clear-eyed view of his younger self. Yes, he freely admits, I really was that stupid.

In this charming, low-key show, the small adventures of a moderately artsy teenager and trainee butcher in 70s Wolverhampton are recounted by the 60-year-old man he's become. If you like Jilted John and Adrian Mole, this is for you. I loved it.

The Wee Review (3/5 stars) 90 days ago

Looking for Wolverhampton’s Latin Quarter is an enjoyable nostalgia-filled wander around mid-1970s West Midlands, as writer and performer Ian Pearce tells of his teenage ambitions to make it big as a poet – or a musician, or maybe even a painter, despite there not being much need for that sort...
