By The Waters Of Liverpool stage play, 2 -13 October

Liverpool Empire Theatre, Lime Street, 2nd – 13th October

A new stage play based on the best-selling book by acclaimed Twopence To Cross The Mersey author Helen Forrester is to receive its UK premiere in Liverpool.

By The Waters Of Liverpool, is being staged at the Liverpool Empire from Tuesday 2nd October to Saturday 13th October 2018. Tickets go on sale on Saturday 28th October to ATG Cardholders and Monday 30th October to the general public.

The play follows the smash-hit success of Forrester’s Twopence To Cross The Mersey and is being brought to audiences by the team behind both the musical and stage play versions of the award-winning true story. More than 170,000 people have seen Twopence since it was premiered and now the long-awaited sequel visits the theatre where it all began.

Rob Fennah wrote both the stage play versions of Twopence To Cross The Mersey and By The Waters Of Liverpool. This next chapter in Helen Forrester’s life story is once again produced by Pulse Records Limited in association with Bill Elms.

At seventeen, Helen had fought and won two bitter battles with her parents; the first to educate herself, the second for the right to go out to work. Her parents are as financially irresponsible as ever, wasting money while their children still lack adequate food and clothing. But for Helen, things are looking up as she begins to make new friends and develop some social life outside the home.

In 1939, now aged twenty and with Britain on the brink of war, Helen has never been kissed by a man. That is until she meets a tall strong seaman, and falls in love.
