Win Playhouse tickets

CELEBRATED writer Jonathan Harvey makes his much anticipated return to the stage with a daring and major new work, Canary, which opens at the Liverpool Playhouse later this week.

In 1960s Liverpool two lovers hide in the closet, then go their separate ways. While pits close and dole queues grow, a couple of runaways find ‘Heaven’ in 1980s London. Flash forward to today and the paparazzi are chasing a love story that could tear a family apart.

Spanning three generations Canary is a tragic, comic and surreal exploration of the changing attitudes towards homosexuality set against the changing backdrop of modern Britain from 1960s to the present. Harvey explores politics, policing and attitudes towards sexuality throughout all echelons of society during this period of great transformation, while also stopping to examine the consequences these choices have on the individuals on this epic journey.

BAFTA Award-winning director Hettie Macdonald also returns to theatre to be reunited with Jonathan, having directed both the original stage and film versions of his award-winning play Beautiful Thing.

Laced with magical touches and pitch black humour, Canary is an unflinching story about family, honesty, and forbidden love spanning four decades. This co-production between Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse, English Touring Theatre and Hampstead Theatre, premiéres at the Liverpool Playhouse from Saturday 24 April to Saturday 15 May then opens in Hampstead prior to a UK tour.

For full details please call 0151 709 4776 or visit www.everymanplayhouse.com to book.

In the mean time, we have two pairs of premium tickets and programmes to give away for the Canary performance on Saturday May 8.
