By The Waters of Liverpool new tour dates for autumn 2021

By The Waters of Liverpool producers have announced new dates for its inaugural tour which has now been postponed twice because of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The latest stage adaptation of Wirral-born author Helen Forrester’s autobiographical works will embark on a 17-venue nationwide tour opening in Lytham St Anne’s in September.

The production, which received its premiere at the Floral Pavilion last March, will return to end its tour in New Brighton in November.

In between the show will visit theatres including St Helens Theatre Royal (September 20-22), Warrington Parr Hall (September 23-24) and The Atkinson at Southport from November 9-12.

Other locations including Lancaster, Winchester, Malvern, Crewe, Halifax, Hayes in Middlesex and Rhyl.

The cast includes Mark Moraghan, Sian Reeves, Eric Potts, Lynn Francis, Danny O’Brien and Lucy Dixon as Helen.

Writer and co-producer Rob Fennah, who also wrote the stage adaptation of the original Twopence to Cross the Mersey, said: “When we launched By The Waters Of Liverpool last year the response was so overwhelming we were determined not to let the pandemic get the better of us.

“By The Waters is not only returning to the stage in September, it's going to be bigger, bolder and more glorious than ever.”

Co-producer Bill Elms added: “With the vaccine roll-out going so well, we can now see the light at the end of a dark tunnel for the theatre industry and we just hope people will feel safe enough to come back in their droves; embracing theatre and live performance more than ever before.”

By the Waters of Liverpool is a period drama produced by Liverpool producers Pulse Records Limited in association with Bill Elms, written by Rob Fennah and directed by Gareth Tudor Price.

It follows the story of Helen - born June Bhatia in Hoylake in 1919 - as she grows into a young woman and finds love, and heartache, as the clouds of war gather over Liverpool.

Cast members Mark Moraghan and Sian Reeves unveiled a blue plaque on Forrester's birthplace last spring.
