Seconds Away! (Staged Reading)

We are thrilled to present an exclusive first staged reading of Seconds Away! an original play with songs starring celebrated actor and musician Jimmy Nail and written by legendary screenwriter Ian La Frenais.

With music and lyrics by Jimmy these staged readings will feature a cast who will perform scenes and songs accompanied by a live band featuring local legend Peter Tickell (Musical Director) and Lindisfarne's Ray Laidlaw (drums and percussion).

Seconds Away! chronicles the gripping journey of Fighting Frankie Tanner - a once celebrated heavyweight boxing champion now navigating a life in reduced circumstances, struggling with personal grief, the wreckage of his marriage, and the disarray of his broken family.

Deeply rooted in the city and culture of Newcastle Upon Tyne, this two-act play delves into the themes of man-to-man combat, old-fashioned values, familial bonds and regional pride. As Frankie confronts these daunting challenges, he must summon the strength for one final, monumental battle—the greatest of them all.

Seconds Away! reunites Jimmy with Ian La Frenais with whom he collaborated on TV series Auf Weidersehen, Pet and Spender and the feature film Still Crazy.

This is an incredibly special opportunity to experience new work at the beginning of its journey.
