The final shows are staged over the weekend of Saturday, July 17 and Sunday, July 18, with Now by Anne Taft and David Paul; Tea Time by writer Graham Edgington presented by G&J Productions; Support Your Local Library – The Rock Opera by Keith Carter and Ruth Cockburn presented by Black Liver; writer and producer Asa Murphy presents The Monkey With No Bum - The Musical; and 12 – The Rainbow Monologues by Wes Williams and presented by Grin Theatre Company.

The festival week will be brought to a close with The Unforgettable Anna May Wong by writer Ross Ericson, presented by Red Dragonfly Productions and Grist To The Mill Productions.

Bill Elms said: “The decision to introduce a sister event to Liverpool Theatre Festival for 2021 was most definitely a great move. Little LTF is unique as there are so few festivals who solely showcase new works. We had an excellent response to our call for submissions and the panel has been overwhelmed by the incredible calibre of work and remarkable talent across Liverpool City Region and the wider North West area.

“Creatives have really jumped on-board for this festival of new works, especially in this first year, so we’re excited for the future already.

“Work submitted was extremely creative, diverse, captivating and inspiring – it’s been a very uplifting experience and proved very difficult for the panel to select its final programme of shows.”

Meanwhile the main Liverpool Theatre Festival takes place from September 1-12, also at the Bombed Out Church.

Little LTF runs from July 12-18. Full details on the shows and booking on the website HERE
