Brick Up the Mersey Tunnels is back at Royal Court

It is the most successful comedy show in Liverpool’s theatre and after five years away ‘Brick Up the Mersey Tunnels’ is returning to The Royal Court.

Dickie Lewis, Nick Walton, and Gerard “Gelegnite” Gardner are three men 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. The Kingsway Three will not be tolled!

Written by Dave Kirby & Nicky Alt ‘Brick Up’ is the perfect Scouse comedy and guarantees tears of laughter and a night you won’t forget in ages.

We caught up with Iain Christie from the Royal Court to talk about the shows success, the theater’s refurb and we even got a sneaky peak of the dress rehearsal for the comedy show everyone loves.

    […] WATCH the cast rehearsing and our chat with Royal Court Theatre Manager Iain Christie here. The story was brilliant, but it is the least thing that impresses when you watch this. The acting, ability and delivery on show is fantastic from all the cast. Special mentions must go to the following; Eithne Brown playing Ann Twacky – The enemy in this story is Ann Twacky, she is someone who has made abit of herself and likes to look down on those who live in Liverpool, who she feels she is miles above – Even though she works there and amongst them herself. Eithne Brown plays the role perfectly, as if it has been purposely written for her. Her performance cannot be faulted and her singing is effortless. She has been around the city for years and is a true professional, this shows in what is a fantastic role for her. Andrew Schofield as Dickie Lewis and Dee Estuary – Dickie Lewis is the lying know it all of the story. He chances and schemes his way into jobs and has a good laugh while doing it. When he is looked down on because he is from Liverpool he finds his money from elsewhere – In getting revenge. Andrew Schofield, who has long cemented his place as a great actor and credit to the city, plays this role as a natural. You can tell he is a professional who loves being on the stage. All his lines are delivered perfectly and to the maximum effect. […]
