One of the most influential mod groups of the 1960’s, it was founded by Steve Marriott, Ronnie Lane, Kenney Jones, and Jimmy Winston. As quickly as the group made it big, jealousy and betrayal rocked them, and Small Faces ended up disbanding in 1969, leaving a huge legacy in the Britpop movement.
Exploring their rocky career in the industry, the sensational jukebox musical contains some of the group’s most popular numbers, including "Whatcha Gonna Do About It", "Tin Soldier", "Lazy Sunday", "Itchycoo Park" and, of course, "All or Nothing".
Carol Harrison writes and directs, with the musical featuring the music and lyrics of Small Faces. Harrison is an actor and writer, best-known for playing Louise Raymond on EastEnders, as well as starring in the BBC sitcom Brushstrokes for five years.
