By the Waters of Liverpool

20th March 2021 - 21st March 2021

 

Adapted from the million-selling book, By The Waters Of Liverpool is a period drama set in the 1930s. The story opens in 1935. Helen Forrester is sixteen years old and fighting a bitter battle with her parents for the right to educate herself and go out to work.

During the Great Depression, Helen’s father lost his fortune when the stock market crashed and the family were suddenly thrown into poverty. Leaving behind the nannies, servants and comfortable middle-class life in the South West of England, the Forrester’s chose Liverpool as the place to start over. They were in for a terrible shock. Taken out of school to care for her younger brothers and sisters while her parents struggled to re-build their shattered lives, Helen is treated as an unpaid slave and desperate to escape.

By 1939, now aged twenty and with Britain on the brink of war, she has never been kissed by a man. But things start looking up for Helen when she meets a tall strong seaman and falls in love.

Helen Forrester will be portrayed by Lucy Dixon (Waterloo Road, Hollyoaks), alongside Mark Moraghan as John Forrester (Helen’s father). Mark is best known in Holby City, Coronation Street and Brookside. Star of stage and screen Sian Reeves (Emmerdale, Mount Pleasant, Still Open All Hours) will play Helen’s Mother, Parry Glasspool (Hollyoaks) will play Helen’s brother Alan. Eric Potts will play ‘Mr Ellis’, Helen’s fiery-tempered boss. Eric is best known in Coronation Street, Doctor Who, Peak Practice, Heartbeat, The Royal and Last of the Summer Wine. Other cast members are Lynn Francis as the ‘Deaconess’; Danny O’Brien as ‘Harry O’Dwyer’; Chloe McDonald as ‘Fiona’ (Helen’s sister); and Roy Carruthers as ‘The Detective’.

By The Waters Of Liverpool has sold more than a million books. Now this is your chance to see it come to life on stage in this exciting new stage play adaptation.

“A big sweeping story with real emotion!” Granada TV said: “By The Waters Of Liverpool is a wonderful play”. Broadcaster and TV Personality Pete Price described it as being: “Outstanding!” The Stage
