The Liver Bird
A magical outdoor family theatrical experience combining classic storytelling and puppetry.
Charlie J, a boy from Liverpool, is bright for his age. “Too clever for his own good,” his dad would say. He is the type of child who would rather escape to his imagination or read a book than play or watch sports. Grandma Bailey encourages his cleverness, teaching him all about the history of his city. He is particularly fascinated by the local folklore about the Liver Birds. When things get difficult at school, and just when he needs it most, Charlie J is visited by a very special creature. What if the Liver Bird really did exist?
The Liver Bird is a contemporary fairy tale by John Maguire that has been adapted for the stage by Jessica May Buxton, The Bookworm Players.
Directed by Margaret Connell, starring Samantha Alton and Ellis Murphy. Set, Costume and Puppetry designed by Sascha Gilmour and created by Amy Freeman, Marina Diamantidi and Kirstyn Peters.
