The 23-year-old, who will be performing at the Vintage Rock bar on Saturday, said: “I don’t know what came over me but I managed it. I sang my heart out and it went really well. I then had to wait for their decision and I was so excited to get through.

“I was glad I decided to give it a go and now I’d really like to get as many people coming along to support me as possible - either at my gig in Doncaster on Saturday or in Sheffield at the end of the month.”

Written by Peter Coley and director by Paul Kelly, this is a play which is sure to leave audiences gasping.

Now, however, Victor has taken to a life of wild hedonism, whilst Harlan leads a passionless existence of dull stoicism.

On a holiday in British Columbia with their long-suffering wives a misjudged prank leaves one of the professors dead, kick-starting a highly entertaining yet chilling nightmare that will keep audiences guessing.
