Presented by ACE's Cabaret, part of the FRINGE WORLD Festival 

Set in Perth in the 70s. Scott is a tormented songwriter who finds inspiration through his obsession with John Lennon.

The show takes you on his journey with the constant support of his muse. Join Scott as he struggles to gain the ultimate prize ... this heart warming musical is a semi autobiographical look at Trevor Gibson's (the writer) own life.
