Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll

After years of slogging around the pub circuit, Ian Dury (Andy Serkis) ditches his band and forms the Blockheads to critical and commercial acclaim, but his sudden escalating success has a profound and damaging effect on those around him, not least his son, Baxter (Bill Milner)…

Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll is a truly life-affirming and brilliantly unsentimental celebration of the Mockney and his music. Serkis was born to play this role, allowing him to make the most of his celebrated physicality and vocal dexterity. (So convincing, in fact, the real Blockheads have suggested Serkis subsequently go on the road with them.)
