ALL OR NOTHING was previewed in 2013 on the beach in Brighton featuring Danny Dyer, who said, “‘All Or Nothing’ has got it all; Drama, pathos, humour and style. Not to mention brilliant music!” A further preview was held in Worthing in 2015, when PP Arnold, Mollie Marriott, Chris Farlowe and Geno Washington also performed. The show then opened to critical acclaim and nightly standing ovations at the Vaults Theatre in London in March 2016 and extended its sold-out run before embarking on its first UK tour.

The Brighton run of ALL OR NOTHING is sponsored by The Golden Lion Group and Brighton Palace Pier. (see Notes to Editors).

Written by the award-winning Brighton-based actress Carol Harrison, ALL OR NOTHING tells the electrifying yet bittersweet tale of Kenney Jones, Ian McLagan, Ronnie Lane and Steve Marriott; four charismatic young kids from East London with humour, attitude, passion and above all talent. They became The Small Faces and were rocketed into the big time, only to discover the path to fantastic success is paved with exploitation, betrayal and ultimately tragedy.

The Sunday Express called the show, “A smile-inducing night of Mod nostalgia” with The Daily Mail’s Richard Littlejohn adding, “There are some great gags, the music is marvellous” and the Daily Telegraph agreeing that “All or Nothing delivers the goods. At once cheeky and reverential”. “Wow! Just wow! This incredible musical takes your breath away... Harrison directs it beautifully” said The Daily Record.

ALL OR NOTHING celebrates the unique sound of the iconic Mod band. The musical is packed full of all the timeless hits, including the brilliant Whatcha Gonna Do About It, Tin Soldier, Lazy Sunday, Here Comes the Nice, Itchycoo Park and of course All or Nothing.

In 1964, a new phenomenon exploded on to the dingy British streets. It was the essence of all that was cool. It was Mod. Mods stuck two fingers up at the class-ridden society and its dull redundant culture. They were working-class free spirits who rode sexy streamlined Italian Vespas or Lambrettas. The sharpest Mod of all was known as a ‘face’. The Small Faces encapsulated all that is Mod, a unique blend of taste and testosterone, neat, clothes obsessed, and streetwise. But these cult sophisticates shared another passion, their dedication to ‘Rhythm and Blues.’

Carol Harrison plays Kay Marriott with Stefan Edwards as Kenney Jones, Russell Floyd as Don Arden, Josh Maddison as Ian McLagan, Joseph Peters as Jimmy Winston, Samuel Pope as Young Steve Marriott, Chris Simmons as Steve Marriott and Stanton Wright as Ronnie Lane. The cast also includes Daniel Beales, Sophia Behn, Melissa Brown-Taylor, Daisy Darvill, Fran Dearlove, Katie Faye, Alexander Gold, Danielle Johnson and Martin Teall.

Carol Harrison said “It’s a real honour to be able to bring the extraordinary world of The Small Faces back to Brighton and to a brand new audience, young and old. Audiences have embraced the chance to enjoy a bit of mod nostalgia and the critics have all acknowledged the vivid underground vibe on stage as we bring the 60s scene into sharp focus. Our live band and cast tell the story of the rise and fall of the band, a journey as colourful as their sound, and get to showcase an amazing catalogue of music - hard edged R&B. This is music which influenced a generation of musicians from Paul Weller and The Jam to Oasis, Blur, The Verve and The Arctic Monkeys, not to mention millions of fans. Book now– it’s truly an experience of a lifetime!"

Carol Harrison is an award-winning actress and writer, well known for her theatre and TV work. Carol is probably best known as the exciting, fiery and passionate Louise Raymond in Eastenders. The storyline between her and son-in-law Grant Mitchell gripped the nation and it was for this storyline that Eastenders won the BAFTA for ''Best Soap'' for the first time. For seven years she played the incorrigible Gloria in the popular series Brushstrokes, and also starred opposite Ray Winstone as sassy Loretta in the comedy series Get Back. She also starred as Dorothy in two series of London's Burning. Her TV movie Martha, Jac a Sianco for S4C won six BAFTA awards.

Chris Simmons is probably best known for playing the role of DC Mickey Webb for over twelve years in the long running ITV series The Bill. He has also appeared in EastEnders as Mark Garland, a love interest for Kat Moon and in the Tracy Beaker spin-off CBBC show, The Dumping Ground. Russell Floyd first came to public attention as market inspector Michael Rose in EastEnders a role he played from 1996 to 1999, and subsequently played DC Ken Drummond in the ITV police drama, The Bill, from 2002 to 2005. He also starred in Jonathan Ford’s 2016 movie Offensive.

The show is endorsed and supported by many of those who feature in its story, including singer P.P. Arnold and Steve Marriott’s daughter Mollie Marriott, who is the show’s vocal coach.
