Set in the backdrop of early 60s London, Telstar is the story of the World's first Independent record producer, Joe Meek. A maverick genius who enjoyed phenomenal early success with 'Telstar', the biggest selling record of its time, before bad luck, depression, heart break and paranoia forced him to murder and suicide.
A gay, amphetamine addicted, talented but deeply troubled soul who dabbled in the occult, Meek is already an iconic figure in the world of British pop, whose messy end had a bizarre inevitability.
Far from being a maudlin tale, this stranger than fiction true story is a brilliantly sharp and beautifully observed satirical comedy.
Telstar opened at the New Ambassadors Theatre in London's West End in June 2005, with a blistering central performance from Con O'Neill as Joe Meek.
