by Tony Timberlake
Cahoots Theatre Company present two Edinburgh previews of the Birmingham Rep production of Looking for John Directed by Tessa Walker. Written and performed by Tony Timberlake.
1976. 19 million people watched Birmingham-born skater John Curry win Olympic gold. Just hours after his victory, John was outed by the tabloids but his iconic Olympic routine and the extraordinary life that followed, changed one young boy’s life forever.
Looking For John is a powerful, heartfelt and comic story of one man’s obsession with a forgotten hero and his journey to get him celebrated once more.
