Looking for John
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Looking for John. Written and performed by Tony Timberlake. As I watched him, it was me gliding, spinning, twisting and turning, every gesture so precise and expressive. 1976. 19 million people watched Birmingham-born skater John Curry win Olympic gold. Just hours after his victory, John was outed by the tabloids, but his iconic Olympic routine and the extraordinary life that followed changed one young boy's life forever. Looking For John is a powerful, heartfelt and comic story of one man's obsession with a forgotten hero and his journey to get him celebrated once more. Director: Tessa Walker.
