  • Overview
    Malcolm, as ten-year old boy who believes he is the reincarnation of Elvis Presley, who runs away from home (in Newcastle), heading for Memphis. He gets as far as Morpeth (22 miles from Newcastle) where he meets Michael, a severely brain-damaged boy with whom he strikes up a close relationship. He returns home after this encounter, but keeps up the relationship, visiting Michael every weekend. The play is mainly concerned with Malcolm, his adult friend Jackie, and Lynne, who is a teenager on work experience at the hpsital at which Michael is a patient, all trying to find a way for Michael, who has no control over any part of his body, to go on a boat trip on the lake.
