The final four shows have been announced for this year’s 11-day Liverpool Theatre Festival, which features 18 productions across 10 days (July 20-30), outdoors at St Luke’s Bombed Out Church in Liverpool city centre.
This year’s festival is being staged in tribute to Liverpool playwright Mark Davies Markham, who died earlier this year. Mark premiered his one-woman play 2Gorgeous4U at last year’s LTF. The show is being staged again in his memory and proceeds from the performance will be donated to charity.
In addition to 2Gorgeous4U, the other three shows completing the programme are A Night With Daniel Taylor – His Music And His Friends; Pauline Daniels – Get Me Before The Crematorium Does; and Laughterhouse Comedy – Pride Special, featuring Morgan Rees and Bethany Black.
Three shows have been specially commissioned for the festival: Sober Companion starring Joe McGann
and Jake Norton, and children’s shows The Oogy Boogy Man and Fred The Musical.
Organisers recently announced nine family shows as part of the festival, which coincides with the school summer holidays for the first time.
Liverpool City Region Pride Festival takes place between July 28-30, and LTF shows have been specifically programmed on these dates to complement the weekend.
Liverpool Theatre Festival producer and artistic director Bill Elms said: “Announcing the final programme is such a milestone, and means we can really start the countdown to this year’s festival."
