Presented by young company Infinite Riches, Lucky 6 tells of the fictional ‘90s pop band of the title, all grown up and reunited for a tour.

Star rating: **

Venue: Spotlites (Venue 278)

Writer and director Alison Morgan presides over a procession of stereotypes, including the alcoholic Scouser and the gobby Welsh woman, but there are moments of pathos in this tale of inter-band pregnancy, jail time for manslaughter and – amusingly – a straight bandmember who has to pretend to be gay for commercial purposes.

Until 20 August. Today 2:05pm.
