Pompeii, L.A.

16 November - 9 December
Merlyn Theatre
Book Now

A spectacular tribute to Hollywood’s highs and lows, Pompeii, L.A. plummets into the anxieties and hysteria of silver screen culture.

Meet the child star. You know the one. Used-up, spat-out and on the fast-track to self-destruction. As his life unravels after a terrible accident, Pompeii, L.A. follows his damaged young mind as it folds inwards and scrambles for an escape. Instead of relief, what he finds is a world in which reality and nightmare collide – a schizoid universe populated by Judy Garland and a host of ex-child stars who are all grown up with nowhere to go.


Duration 90 mins

 Sunglasses at Night
4 – 7pm, Saturday 8 December
Release your inner celebrity Pompeii, L.A. style with an afternoon of croquet, cocktails and smooth tunes following the matinee. Fake tans optional – sunglasses a MUST!

Lutton's production is impeccably orchestrated ... Not to be missed.
Anyone who thinks theatre can't be as potent, mind-blowing and time-bending as the best of David Lynch needs to see this. It's a game-changer.
Pompeii, L.A. is explosive, intoxicatingly alive. 4 STARS.
