David Tristram’s highly successful comedy, Sex, Drugs & Rick ‘n’ Noel is the story of Richard Branson. No, not the Richard Branson – Sir Richard Branson – entrepreneurial, iconic, philanthropic multi-millionaire boss of the Virgin Corporation. No, this is the story of Richard Branson – redundant foundry worker from the Black Country – whose wife has just left him for another woman.

In a desperate attempt to regain his self-esteem, Richard applies to do a history course at Birmingham University. There he meets Noel, another ‘mature’ student with a whole different outlook on life.

Together – well, together they learn more than either could have imagined possible. About life. About women. About themselves. Not too much about history though.

This inoffensive play is an emotional roller coaster of thrills. Brilliantly written with a barrel of laughs and a tear or two.
