It tells the story of ambitious singer Mike Chariot who betrays his best friend and abandons his childhood sweetheart to win the talent show The Golden Voice. But he quickly realises he is a cash cow for the record company and TV executives who abandon him when they have made their money - sound familiar!  Too famous to return to his old life he decides to disappear and is all but forgotten.

So fast forward by 20 years when a wiser Mike Chariot is back to make amends and help young singers and musicians achieve their dreams without entering television talent shows. This brings him back in contact with his former best friend Jim Ryan who now has the power to get his own back.

Nick Fogarty has written the book, lyrics and music and the show is directed by Guy Retallack. Casting to be announced shortly.
