By the Waters of Liverpool

Pulse Records Limited in association with Bill Elms presents the UK premiere tour of Helen Forrester’s BY THE WATERS OF LIVERPOOL. Adapted by Rob Fennah / Directed by Gareth Tudor Price “A big sweeping story of real emotion!” – THE STAGE FEATURING A STAR-STUDDED CAST FROM STAGE AND SCREEN Sian Reeves (Coronation Street), Mark Moraghan (Holby City), Parry Glasspool (Hollyoaks), Lucy Dixon (Waterloo Road) & Eric Potts (Coronation Street) join Lynn Francis, Danny O’Brien, Roy Carruthers and Chloe McDonald.  (Cast may be subject to change)
Adapted from Helen Forrester’s million-selling book, By The Waters Of Liverpool is a stunning period drama set in the 1930s. The story opens in 1935. Helen is sixteen years old and fighting a bitter battle with her parents for the right to educate herself and go out to work. During the Great Depression, Helen’s father lost his fortune when the stock market crashed and the family were suddenly thrown into poverty. Leaving behind the nannies, servants and comfortable middle-class life in the South West of England, the Forrester’s chose Liverpool as the place to start over. They were in for a terrible shock. Taken out of school to care for her younger brothers and sisters while her parents struggled to re-build their shattered lives, Helen is treated as an unpaid slave and is desperate to escape. By 1939, now aged twenty and with Britain on the brink of war, she has still never been kissed by a man. But things start looking up for Helen when she meets a tall strong seaman and falls in love.
