Synopsis


A fascinating play about a little known and formative episode in the early life of Jimi Hendrix.


The Stars That Play With Laughing Sam's Dice commissioned and first performed at Pentameters in 1976.


“… an absorbing, thought-provoking piece that will send those of us of a certain age back to our youth.” Camden New Journal


“Must see. Delightful trip into the mind of Jimi Hendrix. Excellent.” Audience Member


It is 1962 and a potentially explosive standoff is looming in the hold of a US army plane between a veteran white sergeant and a callow black paratrooper.


The young private, who has provoked his sergeant's ire by declining to jump, is James Marshall Hendrix; in four years' time he will come to his apotheosis as rock star Jimi Hendrix.


Now, though, it is not fear or insubordination but a premonition that is stopping him from launching himself from the plane; Jimi is hesitantly poised on the edge of a jump into a future as a musician that will bestow him with "money, fame and chicks".
