About the Play

Based on the iconic 1969 concept album, The Who’s Tommy is the multi-award winning rock opera written by Pete Townshend.

Tommy is traumatized into a catatonic state after witnessing the murder of his mother’s lover by his father. Unable to speak, hear or see, Tommy survives an abusive childhood to become a pinball playing wizard and an international superstar adored by thousands of fans.

Tommy has entertained audiences for more than 40 years with its story of the triumph of the human spirit. With 22 performers and musicians live onstage, its epic score includes Tommy Can You Hear Me, I’m Free, See Me, Feel Me and Pinball Wizard.

“This exceptional production by Ramps on the Moon sinks its fangs into the jugular of 2016 and gives it a good hard kick up the arse.” Exeunt Magazine, The Government Inspector, Ramps on the Moon 2016 tour

Tommy features a creative use of audio description, captioning and British Sign Language interpretation. A touring production made in association with Ramps on the Moon; for more information visit

Please note this production explores some adult themes.
