"I didn't sleep my way to second place."
ABOUT THE RUNNER UP
Another town, another dud gig for 80s one-hit wonder Cyn and her band the Cynthetics. But could a chance meeting turn Cyn's 35 years of bad luck around?
Part rock comedy part anti-heroine's journey, The Runner Up is a substance-soaked, tragi-comedy about a fabulous failure and her courage to pursue a cause - lost long ago.
With hits from legendary rock chicks, eye-wateringly shocking costumes and a magnificent punch line, this theatre cabaret rock hybrid dares to dream even harder than any TV talent-show contestant ever could.
Written by Louise McCabe who stars as Cyn, The Runner Up was directed By Stephen Sheehan and features Pearl Tassell, Jai Cafarella, Jimmy Vine and Dylan Warren.
