Event Description

With a foot-tapping reggae beat in his soul, country boy Ivan arrives in town with dreams of the big time. But the harsh reality of life soon drives him into the fast lane of guns and gangs, ending up torn between love and glory, poverty and fame, life and death.

After the West End and North America, it’s the sensational live show of the iconic 70s movie that exploded legend Jimmy Cliff and Reggae onto the world stage. A tale of broken dreams, The Harder They Come is a rich mix of heady music and dance, sparkling dialogue, low-life and high spirits, good-guys and good-byes…

All the great songs are here…“You Can Get It If You Really Want”, “Many Rivers to Cross” and “The Harder They Come”, skanking live to the coolest reggae band this side of Kingston.

‘The music is irresistible.. The ace onstage musicians… marvelously capture that addictive mixture of jauntiness and melancholy that characterises reggae at its best.’
Daily Telegraph
