Love, Liverpool run cancelled after covid case in cast


The Everyman and Playhouse’s new production Love, Liverpool has been forced to cancel the remainder of its run because of a Covid case among the company.

The show, which opened at the Playhouse last week, was due to run until this Saturday.

News of a positive Covid test in the cast initially led to the cancellation of Wednesday evening and the Thursday matinee.

But the decision was later taken to axe all the remaining performances.

Ticket holders are being contacted by the box office.

A statement on the Everyman and Playhouse website said: “We’re immensely proud to have been able to make it happen on stage in these difficult times and would like to thank all who have supported the show from its very start as a podcast back in lockdown to the stage show.

“We’ve enjoyed celebrating this city and its people with Love, Liverpool and are disappointed to not be able to finish the run on Saturday.”

Love, Liverpool began as an online lockdown project last year and was turned into a stage production by writer Chloë Moss.
