5 THINGS TO DO TONIGHT IN LIVERPOOL
Bouncers at The Royal Court
It’s 1985 and Ralph, Les, Judd and Lucky Eric are on the doors of The Continental. Times may change but some things stay the same. The lads are watching, protecting and taking the mick out of characters that you will all recognise.
John Godber’s classic play is back at the Royal Court Liverpool again by popular demand. The production will see the return of Michael Starke, Paul Broughtonand Danny O’Brien and for this year’s run we are delighted to welcome Andrew Schofield.
To us this is scouse comedy at it’s very, very best. If you don’t leave the theatre laughing out loud and wanting to revisit the old nightclubs of yesteryear then there is something wrong with you. Be quick though Bouncers finishes it’s run on Sunday, and we pray that is comes back soon, Michael Starke as a scouse bird will be sincerely missed.

Hosted by Jamie Sutherland, and Headlined by Les Gibson, comedy impressionist, this will be a must see show at the festival. Les is undoubtedly one of the country’s finest impressionists, and was a finalist on BGT, finishing in the top 10 out of 100,000 applicants.

Odyssey: Feared Dead at the Everyman
Revered poet Simon Armitage again mines the fertile ground of Greek mythology with a modern take on the classic tale. After their successful collaboration, The Last Days of Troy, Armitage has once again teamed up with director Nick Bagnall to bring to life the misadventure of a high ranking government minister. An ambitious concept which includes sirens, cyclops, witches and whirlpools will surely make this a fantastic spectacle as well as an engaging story.
