About Chasing Bono

A new comedy by legendary writers Dick Clements and Ian La Franais, creators of such acclaimed television programmes as 'The Likely Lads?', 'Porridge', 'Auf Wiedersehen Pet', 'Lovejoy', and 'The Commitments'.

1970s Dublin. Friends Neil McCormick and Paul Hewson share the same ambition: to form bands and become global superstars. Paul changed his name to ‘Bono’ and his band became U2. Neil’s band never got off the ground.

1987. Dublin gangster Danny Machin wants a fair and balanced account written of his life whilst now-writer Neil is wondering where his went so wrong. Danny sees an opportunity and kidnaps him. Neil becomes Danny’s biographer. Danny becomes Neil’s shrink, probing the reasons for his succession of disastrous decisions.

Neil McCormick’s wise and witty memoir, I Was Bono’s Doppelgänger, recounts his friendship and rivalry with his school friend and Superstar Bono. The play is a rock n’ roll fable about the pursuit of fame and coming to terms with failed ambition.

Directed by Gordon Anderson (The Catherine Tate Show, The Inbetweeners, Shamless, Fresh Meat, Lovesick).
