Kurt and Sid

Roy Smiles

Oberon Books

April 1994. A man sits alone in an attic extension on the cusp of becoming a Seattle suicide statistic. This man is no 'number and name' to be reported in a local newspaper. He is an icon, albeit a reluctant one. Kurt Cobain, the front man of Nirvana, is about to pull the trigger of the gun in his hand and join the leagues of rock star deaths down the ages. Without invitation, Kurt has the curious company of a man purporting to be the Sex Pistols' Sid Vicious, Kurt's hero.

Roy Smiles' witty and beautifully poignant new play explores exactly what it means to dice with death when being alive proves to be all too painful and peace seems elusive...

Roy Smiles plays include Ying Tong - A Walk with The Goons, Pythonesque, Kurt & Sid and Year Of The Rat (all published by Oberon Books), Stand Up, Bombing People, Schmucks, Lunatics' Tango, The Last Pilgrim, Roberto Calvi Is Alive & Well and The Promised Land. He has won two Guinness Fringe Awards and was short-listed for Best Play at the Off West Awards in 2001. He had a writing attachment to the National Theatre in 2001. His book on comic influences: Funny People is also published by Oberon Books.
