Fresh from its sell-out premiere at Liverpool Theatre Festival comes Swan Song, a bittersweet comedy written by multi award winning, Jonathan Harvey.
The one-man shows stars TV and Stage actor Andrew Lancel and is directed by BAFTA award winning Noreen Kershaw.
It is Liverpool 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 will make audiences laugh, but equally pull at the heartstrings. Everyone knows someone like Dave – or could even be a Dave themselves.
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 and now it is set to tour the UK in February in conjunction with LGBT History Month.
