The Wiz, Presented by Beacons, Icons and Dykons @ The Bike Shed Theatre, Exeter

Beacons, Icons and Dykons presents an evening of performance inspired by and featuring the best moments from musical spectacular The Wiz. (Sidney Lumet, 1978)

Starring Diana Ross, Michael Jackson and Richard Pryor, the film retells the classic tale of the Wizard of Oz with an African American cast, where the Land of Oz is a fantasy version of New York City.

A host of BID’s favourites will punctuate the evening with performance as we show the film’s best moments. Performers include Harold Offeh, who employs humour and explores aspects of contemporary culture, multidimensional artist and professional show-off Steve Nice, Paula Varjack who explores identity, the unsaid, and making the invisible visible and BID’s very own Tom Marshman.
