​A bittersweet comedy written by multi-award-winning writer Jonathan Harvey, directed by BAFTA award winning Noreen Kershaw and starring TV and stage actor Andrew Lancel.

Liverpool, Christmas 1997: the world is changing and in the staff room, gay, forty-something, English teacher Dave Titswell finds that not all change is welcome. He has a crush, but life, love, and work are never straight forward for Dave. 

Will a school trip to The Lakes change things for the better, or make things decidedly worse?

Swan Song was first staged at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1997, before transferring to Hampstead Theatre with award-winning comedy actress Rebecca Front in the lead role. Jonathan Harvey adapted the 70-minute play specially for Liverpool Theatre Festival for Andrew Lancel to play the solo role of Dave Titswell. 

The Swan Song tour will make audiences laugh, but equally pull at the heartstrings. Everyone knows someone like Dave – or could even be a Dave themselves.
