Elvis Presley helps save a marriage

NoLogoProductions bring Are You Lonesome Tonight? to the 2011 Brighton Fringe for two nights - the story of Dwight Carter, an American man who sets out to save his marriage by taking his wife to see all twelve dates of a tour by the man whose music brought them together: Elvis Presley.

Sadly for Dwight, the tour is the one Elvis never got to play, dying the day before it was due to start. Even more sadly for Dwight, and his wife, they are a long way from home on their way to the first show when the news breaks.
