Scouse Pacific – Royal Court, Liverpool

Writer: Fred Lawless Director: Bob Eaton Reviewer: John Roberts First produced at The Royal Court as a Christmas production, now almost a decade later the show gets a summer revival, which feels as fresh and as funny as it was when it was first performed.

Mam! I’m ‘Ere – Royal Court, Liverpool

Writer/Director: Stephen Fletcher Reviewer: David Sedgwick Summer is in the air and maybe even love is in the air too. Hope springs eternal.

Noises Off – Royal Court, Liverpool

Writer: Michael Frayn Director: Bob Eaton Reviewer: Matt Yeoman   It’s a risky business producing a comedy so well known as Michael Frayn’s Noises Off. Bob Eaton and his team at the Royal Court Liverpool have risen to the challenge and with a strong cast and creative team the production does not disappoint.
