Sweeney Todd - Liverpool Everyman
📅 12 April - 18 May 2019
He never forgets and never forgives
England is choking. Its landscape is blackened. This is the rotten core of the decaying nineteenth century.
As the rich sit back, the workers are left to forage for society’s scraps. But in the big city – the unconcealed pinnacle of this desperate misery – one man is plotting. From his fearsome barber’s chair, he’s planning the bloodiest, juiciest, most succulent act of revenge ever seen.
The story of Sweeney Todd’s cut-throat vengeance – and Mrs Lovett’s curiously toothsome pies – has left a curdling, crimson trail for over 150 years. Now this malevolent tale comes lurching back to life in the masterly musical by Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler.
Stuffed to the gizzard with mesmerising music and crow-black comedy, this is anarchic theatre at its thrilling best. And of course, we’re baking it to an Everyman recipe – so sit down, tuck in and enjoy the revolutionary taste of a tale with a blood red heart.

Chekhov's First Play
📅 Wednesday 8 - Saturday 11 May 2019
Liverpool Playhouse Theatre
"I’m having absolutely nothing to do with the theatre or the human race. They can all go to hell."
During the turmoil of the Russian Revolution in 1917, Maria Chekhov, Anton’s sister, placed many of her late brother’s manuscripts and papers in a safety deposit box in Moscow.
In 1921 Soviet scholars opened the box, and discovered a play. The title page was missing. The play they found has too many characters, too many themes, too much action.
All in all, it’s generally dismissed as unstageable.
Award-winning Irish Theatre Company Dead Centre, do injustice to a great playwright. Chekhov before he was Chekhov.Headphones are provided and worn throughout the performance.
The Worst Witch
📅 28 May - 1 June 2019
Liverpool Playhouse Theatre
Mildred Hubble was an ordinary girl who found herself in an extraordinary place: a school for witches. Now in her final year, accident prone Mildred and her fellow pupils are about to embark on their biggest and most important adventure yet…
Jealous Ethel Hallow is always out to spoil Mildred’s fun. Miss Hardbroom is opposed to all fun in general. And just as Mildred sparks some inevitable mayhem certain to upset them both, an old enemy returns with a plan for revenge that could threaten not just the Academy, but the whole world.
Jill Murphy’s The Worst Witch stories have sold more than five million copies worldwide and been made into numerous films and TV series. Featuring all of Jill Murphy’s beloved characters, this new action-packed stage adaptation written by Emma Reeves (Hetty Feather) and directed by Theresa Heskins (Around the World in 80 Days) includes original songs, music, magic and a dose of Mildred’s unique brand of utter pandemonium!
