THE GAMEBy Harold Brighouse (Author of Hobsons Choice)Directed by Barrie Rutter
TUE 21 TO SAT 25 SEP
Lancashire. 1913. Match Day!
Blackton Rovers is in need of money. Owner, Austin Whitworth, sells his star centre forward local football hero Jack Metherell to a rival club on the eve of a crucial match that could see Rovers relegated to the 2nd Division. Will honest Jack do Austins bidding when asked to throw the match? Or will he put his professional honour above loyalty to his old club?
From the halcyon days of professional football where players were working class heroes and people were supposed to know their place comes a spirited comedy that combines broad northern humour with the passion, pride, prejudice and principles of two football families.
Northern Broadsides make a welcome return to Liverpool for the third time this year following Medea and The Canterbury Tales.
one ensemble. eight stories. infinite possibilities.imagine what a night out at the theatre could be.
THU 16 SEP TO SAT 30 OCT
8After the death of her mother, Annabella is left to face adolescence alone.
When her elder brother Giovanni returns home, he propels them both into a dangerous world of sexual transgression and youthful revolt. Together they crash through the boundaries of what can be said, what can be read, what to believe and who you can love.
First unleashed in 1633 Tis Pity Shes A Whore is one of the most shocking and powerful theatre stories of all time.

Eternity was in our lips and eyes
Two civilizations are torn apart by the force of historys most enduring love story.
Renowned actress and director Janet Suzman directs a remarkable cast in Shakespeares epic tragedy of passion and power. Kim Cattrall returns to her birthplace to play Cleopatra, one of the greatest roles in the Shakespearean canon, opposite Jeffery Kissoon as the once great warrior, Antony.
As East meets West, honour and desire collide in a sweeping tale of war, intrigue and passion. The story of a love that destroys an empire, Antony and Cleopatra is served by an extraordinary company that will bring Shakespeares kaleidoscopic vision and breath- taking poetry to stunning realisation.

Fri 12 Nov
This warts-and-all portrait of the Blockheads lead singer explores the highs and lows of Ian Durys extraordinary career and inspirational life story. Featuring many of his best songs performed live, including Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick and Reasons To Be Cheerful.
Publicly, Ian Dury was a cheeky chappie and purveyor of saucy lyrics. Privately, he was a flawed maestro wrestling with demons and disability. This brilliant drama sees him reunited with his tour manager and friend Fred Spider Rowe, blending amazing music with powerful scenes exploring Durys incredible triumph over adversity.
HHHHH Brilliant. Tells a fascinating story with both humour and brutal reality. British Theatre Guide

HIT ME! THE LIFE AND RHYMES OF IAN DURYBy Jeff Merrifield
Sheffields finest synthesizer player and twaddle talker (Daily Telegraph) decides its time to instruct the Nation in moral matters.
Britain is in serious moral decline: dwindling church attendances, binge drinking in City centres, the MPs expenses scandal and fat cat bonuses, the continued destruction of the environment despite global warming, and most rece
