Stephen Frost to star in a new sci-fi convention musical

Playing the creator of a cult TV hit

Comedy Store Player Stephen Frost is to star in a new musical based around a sci-fi convention

In the stage show Fanatical, the improviser, comic and actor will play Scott Furnish, the reclusive creator of a cult TV hit called Angel 8

Fanatical is set in a conference centre somewhere in England where 1,000 fans have gathered for Eight Con One, the first ever official convention in honour of their favourite programme.

Angel 8 is about a deep space cargo ship under the command of a fearless pilot. Its first series ended on a shocking cliffhanger and with eager anticipation about a second series, these enthusiastic devotees have come together to meet Scott face-to-face and hear his keynote speech.

The cast of Fanatical also includes Suanne Braun, who had a small role in the Twentica episode of Red Dwarf.

Written by composer and lyricist Matt Board – who previously wrote an opera about Friends –  and playwright Reina Hardy, it will be staged at the Playground Theatre in West London from November 8 to December 9.
