The Leaving of Liverpool

(More information on this early performance as it becomes available.)




Synopsis: The desperation and anticipation which pushed on the emigrants from Ireland and the exploitation of children by those profiting from the transatlantic trade combine to create a gripping drama which is splendidly balanced with beautiful ballads and sparky humour. Every character is quickly identified and provides scope for young actors to work together in a tight production of one of the National Youth Music Theatre's acclaimed successes.
