In October this year Royal Court Liverpool will be producing the definitive show about Liverpool Football Club. You’ll Never Walk Alone – The Legend of Liverpool FC tells the story of one of the World’s most famous football clubs, written by one of its biggest fans.
Nicky Allt has already had massive success with the stage play One Night In Istanbul and LFC related books such as The Boys From The Mersey as well as being co-writer of Liverpool’s most seen play of the last ten years – Brick Up The Mersey Tunnels. He is already excited by what is a huge project:
“With our legendary club 120 years old and finally in safe hands, The King on The Throne, Luis, Steven and Jamie ready to take the legend further, and our fanatical supporters absolutely buzzing again, this was the one to write.”
The show tells stories of the glories on the fields of Anfield Road from Elisha Scott, Albert Stubbins and Billy Liddell to Kenny Dalglish, John Barnes and Steven Gerrard. With complete access to the LFC archive Nicky Allt has brought together every major incident in the club’s 119 year history and created a show that will make you laugh, cry and cheer out loud.
Director Bob Eaton, who has enjoyed success at the Royal Court with Lennon, Our Day Out, Scouse Pacific and countless others, will also be working on the show. Mark Moraghan and Pauline Daniels will star in the show but the full cast is still to be confirmed.
Kevin Fearon, Chief Executive of Royal Court Liverpool, is also raring to go: “It is the right time for this play and we have got the experience and ability to do it well. I’m confident that we can produce the definitive stage show about LFC.”
