Little LTF reveals 2022 line-up of new shows


Liverpool Theatre Festival’s Little LTF returns to St Luke’s Bombed Out Church next month – and the line-up of shows has now been revealed.

The mini festival, now in its second year, is dedicated to supporting and presenting new works.

This year’s Little LTF runs from May 3-8 and will showcase 12 new productions which cover genres including drama, comedy, cabaret, children’s shows, disability arts, LGBTQ and children’s theatre.

Tickets are on sale from noon today.

It opens on May 3 with murder-mystery comedy Not Drunk But Disorderly by Megan Hindley and Beth Amos.

The other festival productions are: Grandmother by Asa Murphy; Keeping Mum by Karl Voden; Mark Heller’s drama Killing Mice; rom-com It Must Be Love by Paul Daley; An Evening With Nana Funk; children’s show Murder, Mayhem and Magic; Rebekah McLoughlin’s Around the World in 72 Days: The Story of Nellie Bly; outrageous comedy Sh*t Faced Santa; disability drama Just Aretha, and musical theatre show Bigger Than Broadway.

The festival closes on May 8 with Tom Cain’s powerful Hillsborough drama 97+.

All shows take place in a marquee inside the landmark St Luke’s and have a running time of between 50 and 75 minutes with no interval.

Producer and Liverpool Theatre Festival artistic director Bill Elms said: “When we launched Little LTF last year, we were overwhelmed by the response both from creatives and from our audiences who flocked to see the fantastic range of new work staged at the Bombed-Out Church.

“That has continued this year with an incredibly high standard of submissions across the board. The ambition, creativity and talent on show means the panel has had a really tough time choosing just 12 shows to premiere at next month’s festival.”
