Opening: Brick Up at Royal Court, Liverpool
Brick Up The Mersey Tunnels is back at the Royal Court this week - having sold a combined 100,000 tickets for its 2006, 2007 and 2008 runs the play has been seen by more people than any other Liverpool show in the last three years. This popular production runs at the Royal Court - Liverpool - from 17 June - 16 July.
The musical play is about Dickie Lewis, Nick Walton, and Gerard “Gelegnite” Gardner, three men known as ‘The Kingsway Three’, who have had enough. Fed up with being looked down on and mocked by the self-proclaimed upper class from the Wirral peninsula, they decide to take the law into their own hands.
Kevin Fearon, chief executive of Royal Court Liverpool, said: “This play has been so important for the theatre - its first performances back in the summer of 2006 began the real renaissance of the Royal Court as a venue for theatre. Over 100,000 people have already seen it and one person we know has seen it 15 times!"
The Musical Director is Howard Gray Company and returning to directorial duties is Bob Eaton. Brick Up The Mersey Tunnels is written by Dave Kirby & Nicky Allt and the sets are designed by Billy Meall.
