Audiences are loving Liver Birds Flying Home at Royal Court
A new musical based on The Liver Birds, by Carla Lane and Myra Tyler, has had audiences falling in love with its magical mix of music, mirth and melancholy.
Beryl and Sandra were the Liver Birds, the embodiment of the swinging 70’s in Liverpool. Red and blue, north and south, posh and streetwise, the word was theirs for the taking. But one stayed…and the other left.
Forty years after they tore up the city, the Liver Birds are reunited as if nothing has changed, but everything has. Can things be like they used to be – or are their lives like a bag of broken biscuits?
Directed by Benji Sperring, this brand new musical rivals anything that the city has produced in the past, taking a look at Carla Lane’s perfect pair and how they have lived, loved and grown up. Liver Birds Flying Home will make you laugh, cry and laugh again as you hum along to Mike Lindup and Barb Jungr’s haunting melodies. Liver Birds may fly high…but they always fly home.
Reviewers have described the show as “sensational”, so grab your tickets whilst you still can. The show runs until Saturday May 12th.
