Laurence Wilson’s play Blackberry Trout Face continues touring this week with a visit to Whitby Hall in Ellesmere Port, south Wirral.

Liverpool-based theatre company 20 Stories High, in association with Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse, opened the production at the Unity Theatre last week after debuting the play in 2009.

Following its visit to Liverpool, Blackberry Trout Face will appear at the home of Action Transport Theatre in Ellesmere Port, which is celebrating its 25th birthday over the coming year.

Blackberry Trout Face is billed as being a bold, funny, and gritty play as you’d expect from Wilson if anyone ever caught Lost Monsters at the Everyman two years ago.

Directed by 20 Stories High’s co-artistic director Julia Samuels, Blackberry Trout Face explores the universal themes of family, loyalty and ambition. The play follows three young people (played by Nicola Bentley, David Lyons, and Leon Tagoe) as they struggle to cope in exceptional circumstances.

A performance of Blackberry Trout Face appears at Whitby Hall at 7.30pm on Thursday 29 September. Elsewhere in the Northwest, the play visits Huyton Youth Zone on 30 September and then Zion Arts Centre in Manchester on 13 October.
