Civil war on Merseyside


An "English civil war western with a contemporary edge" is the author’s intriguing description of Offered Up, a new thriller by Merseyside writer, actor and singer Joe Matthew-Morris, opening at Liverpool’s Royal Court Theatre Studio in June (June 22-July 9).

The year is 1645 and the Civil War rages. Willmas runs an inn just outside Chester, struggling to stay afloat by serving both factions. Then arrives a man of the cloth whose robes don’t sit right – plus a gun-slinging outlaw, bringing intrigue and danger behind her. Is there enough room at the inn for the problems they bring?
