Liverpool Everyman to restage Our Lady of Blundellsands
Our Lady of Blundellsands is set to return to the Liverpool Everyman this September.
The show, written by Liverpool playwright Jonathan Harvey and directed by Nick Bagnall, was being staged at the Hope Street theatre last March when the venue was forced to close due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Only 10 performances were able to take place during its initial run, including press night.
But now Everyman bosses have revealed that it will be brought back as part of an autumn season of productions.
The new run takes place between September 17 and October 9, although it is not yet clear whether some or all of the original cast will be returning in their roles.
Our Lady of Blundellsands concerns families and fantasies, honesty and lies – and how heartbreaking great comedy can be.
It’s no secret that Sylvie is unravelling. Frozen in time in her Blundellsands house, she inhabits a fantasy world that never was.
Garnet, her sister, is older and wiser – and wearier, with her shopping lists and tired love. She’s always fanned the flames of Sylvie’s fantasies. Because if she didn’t… who knows where they’d both end up?
But now the whole family’s up in Liverpool for a birthday, and Garnet has got a secret of her own to pass on.
The March 2020 cast included Josie Lawrence as Sylvie and Annette Badland as Garnet.
Our Lady of Blundellsands returns to the Everyman from September 17 to October 9.
