Open Air tour for Off The Ground Theatre this summer


Off the Ground Theatre is bringing its new production of Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost to open air venues in Wirral and Liverpool this summer.

The West Kirby based theatre company planned to first present the poetic comedy two years ago, but it had to be postponed because of the pandemic.

Now the show is set to come to St Luke’s Bombed Out Church on July 28, Claremont Farm on July 31, Burton Manor (August 2), Queen’s Park at Meols (August 3), Birkenhead Priory (August 4), Royden Park from August 5-6 and Gordale Garden Centre in Wirral on August 7.

It will then go on to tour Ireland.

Ferdinand, King of Navarre, has sworn a vow with his three closest friends and most trusted advisers, to avoid the company of women, to fast and to sleep just three hours a day for three years, so they can devote themselves fully to their studies.

No sooner have they sworn this vow but the Princess of France arrives with her three ladies-in-waiting. What follows is a summer of carnival fun and games in the pursuit of love.

Expect singing, dancing and an utterly outrageous Spanish courtier making risqué jokes, before a touching and unexpected ending.

The production is directed by Connor Wray and the cast includes graduates of Young Everyman Playhouse (YEP), Cronton 6th Form College’s professional theatre programme, and Off The Ground’s own youth theatre.

Love’s Labour’s Lost opens on July 27 and is at various venues across the region. Full details and tickets HERE
