“A big sweeping story of real emotion!” THE STAGE
THE UK PREMIERE TOUR OF
HELEN FORRESTER’S BY THE WATERS OF LIVERPOOL Adapted by ROB FENNAH / Directed by GARETH TUDOR PRICE
FEATURING A STAR-STUDDED CAST FROM STAGE AND SCREEN Mark Moraghan, Sian Reeves, Parry Glasspool, Lucy Dixon & Eric Potts join Lynn Francis, Danny O'Brien, Roy Carruthers and Chloe McDonald. Adapted from Helen Forrester’s million-selling book, By The Waters Of Liverpool is a stunning period drama set in the 1930s. The story opens in 1935. Helen is sixteen years old and fighting a bitter battle with her parents for the right to educate herself and go out to work. During the Great Depression, Helen’s father lost his fortune when the stock market crashed and the family were suddenly thrown into poverty. Leaving behind the nannies, servants and comfortable middle-class life in the South West of England, the Forrester’s chose Liverpool as the place to start over. They were in for a terrible shock. Taken out of school to care for her younger brothers and sisters while her parents struggled to re-build their shattered lives, Helen is treated as an unpaid slave and desperate to escape. By 1939, now aged twenty and with Britain on the brink of war, she has still never been kissed by a man. But things start looking up for Helen when she meets a tall strong seaman and falls in love.
“By The Waters Of Liverpool also features flashbacks to Helen’s earlier books Liverpool Miss and Twopence To Cross The Mersey. I’ve even weaved in a storyline from Helen’s fourth autobiography, Lime Street At Two. That way those unfamiliar with Helen’s work still get a complete picture of her life”. Rob Fennah ~ Playwright and friend of Helen Forrester.

Following their phenomenally successful recent tour, which included dates at London’s Royal Albert Hall and Arenas around the UK, The Drifters are back on the road with string of additional dates for 2020, with a line up hand-picked by Tina Treadwell herself - President of the Treadwell Entertainment Group and owner of The Drifters name.
Tina, who previously worked for Disney as an executive producer and casting director, believes this current line-up is one of the best to date and looks forward to the upcoming concert tour. “I am very excited that we have a new show for the fans who we invite to join us in celebrating this incredible and everlasting story of The Drifters.”

It goes without saying that Paul’s skills are top notch – there's not a hint of movement from his lips and he has a strong command of a range of different voices but it’s his control of the puppets and sense of timing that brings his characters to life!
