Opened at the Belvarosi Theatre, Budapest on 6 January 2007

“Suda has staged a disco-era Greek Tragedy in the Belvarosi Theatre… and has this ground-breaking twentieth-century antique tragedy played in a most pleasing manner.”
– Tamas Tarjan, Nepszava

COVERSHOW is a play revolving around London and New York between 1978 and 1984, presenting the nostalgic remnants of the disco-era. Young people are rebelling against conservative society as a whole; alas, they can find no easily graspable reason to do so. The world leaders are engaged in the Cold War, and New York is engaged in Andy Warhol.

Vivienne Westwood and her boyfriend, Malcolm McLaren create the punk style to express something like a rebellion against Thatcher and Queen Elizabeth II.

Meanwhile, in New York, Warhol is asked to organize a final party in STUDIO54 with Divine. Just at the same moment, Joe Dallesandro arrives in New York and lands in Warhol’s apartment and his bed. But Andy’s woes do not end here. He also has to present somebody new at the fashion week in NYC. Thatcher is outraged–by Reagan, who chats her up on the Washington-London hotline.

Finally, Warhol decides to invite Westwood to New York, and Thatcher makes up her mind to go to a rendezvous with Reagan, who organizes a UN conference just to meet her. On the plane to the Big Apple, there is a surprise guest: Queen Elizabeth II, who has also decided to see the New York night-life for herself. They all head to one place–the one that is called STUDIO54.


This play is a work of fiction. Any resemblance to characters either living or dead, or to places, brands, events, is entirely the product of the author’s imagination.
