Liverpool Empire date for Wagatha Christie trial show

A West End show based on the ‘Wagatha Christie’ libel case is set to come to the Liverpool Empire.

Vardy v Rooney: The Wagatha Christie Trial will be staged at the Lime Street theatre for one night only on Sunday, May 28 as part of a limited UK tour.

Tickets go on sale on February 17.

Edited from seven sensational days of High Court transcripts, witness the case of Rebekah Vardy verses Coleen Rooney in their own words.

It’s billed as a “story stranger than fiction that blurs the boundaries of tabloid scoop, court case and soap opera” and which explores celebrity and privacy in modern Britain – while asking who is Davy Jones and exactly where is his locker?

Lucy May Barker and Laura Dos Santos reprise their roles as Vardy and Rooney respectively, and the cast also includes Jonathan Broadbent, Tom Turner and Liverpool actor Nathan McMullen.

The verbatim production is adapted by Liv Hennessy, directed by Lisa Spurling and designed by Polly Sullivan.

Vardy v Rooney: The Wagatha Christie Trial is at the Liverpool Empire on Sunday, May 28. Details HERE
