Stars of the small screen are set to explode on to the stage in Bucks next month after topping £1 million in tickets sales across the UK in the new show, All or Nothing – The MOD Musical.

The show, which opened to critical acclaim at the Vaults Theatre in London last March, is written and directed by award-winning actress Carol Harrison – best known for her role in EastEnders.

Heading to Aylesbury Waterside Theatre from Tuesday, October 10 to Saturday, October 14, All or Nothing tells the “electrifying, yet bittersweet” tale of four charismatic young kids from East London with humour, attitude, passion and above all talent.

Kenney Jones, Ian McLagan, Ronnie Lane and Steve Marriott became the Small Faces and were rocketed into the big time, only to discover the path to fantastic success is paved with exploitation, betrayal and ultimately tragedy.

The people behind All or Nothing say it celebrates the unique sound of the iconic Mod band and is packed full of timeless hits including the brilliant Whatcha Gonna Do About It, Tin Soldier, Lazy Sunday, Itchycoo Park and of course, All or Nothing.

In 1964, a new phenomenon exploded on to the dingy British streets. It was the essence of all that was cool. 

Mods stuck two fingers up at the class-ridden society and its dull redundant culture. They were working-class free spirits who rode sexy streamlined Italian Vespas or Lambrettas.  

The sharpest Mod of all was known as a ‘face’. The Small Faces encapsulated all that is Mod, a unique blend of taste and testosterone, neat, clothes obsessed, and streetwise. But these cult sophisticates shared another passion, their dedication to ‘Rhythm and Blues’.

Carol Harrison plays Kay Marriott, at certain performances, with Stefan Edwards as Kenney Jones, Russell Floyd as Don Arden, Josh Maddison as Ian McLagan, Joseph Peters as Jimmy Winston, Samuel Pope as Young Steve Marriott, Chris Simmons as Steve Marriott and Stanton Wright as Ronnie Lane. 

Carol Harrison is an award-winning actress and writer, well known for her theatre and TV work. She is probably best known as the exciting, fiery and passionate Louise Raymond in EastEnders.  

For seven years she also played the incorrigible Gloria in the popular series Brushstrokes, and also starred opposite Ray Winstone as sassy Loretta in the comedy series Get Back. 

She said: “It’s a real honour to be able to bring the extraordinary world of the Small Faces back to the fans and to a brand new audience, young and old.  

“Our live band and cast tell the story of the rise and fall of the band, a journey as vivid and colourful as their sound, and get to showcase an amazing catalogue of music.  

“This is music which influenced a generation of musicians from Paul Weller and The Jam to Oasis, Blur, The Verve and The Arctic Monkeys, not to mention millions of fans. Book – it’s truly a concert of a lifetime!”  

Chris Simmons is best known for playing the role of DC Mickey Webb for over twelve years in the long running ITV series The Bill.  

He has also appeared in EastEnders as Mark Garland, a love interest for Kat Moon and in the Tracy Beaker spin-off CBBC show, The Dumping Ground.  

The show is endorsed and supported by many of those who feature in its story, including singer P.P. Arnold and Steve Marriott’s daughter Mollie Marriott, who is the show’s vocal coach.
