A special production inspired by the Everton story will be shown in several cinemas across the North West throughout May 2022.
The great old lady will immerse audiences in the extraordinary history of Everton Football Club, its home at Goodison Park and some of the city’s most famous footballing and non-footballing figures.
Written by Kenny O’Connell and directed by Carl Cockram, the play will also star Michael ‘Speedo Mick’ Cullen.
The story begins to unfold when two Evertonians barricade themselves inside the famous Everton Lock-Up (the “tower” featured on the Club’s crest), hoping to find “Prince’s” lost gold. Rupert”.
Inside the tower, they stumble upon a secret tunnel and unwittingly release the ghosts of Everton’s past… Dixie Dean, Molly Bushell, Prince Rupert, Maggie Magee and Bessie Braddock.
Each spirit will take them on a historic journey where they will discover the true meaning of being an Evertonian and the rich history that lies at the heart of the Everton badge.
Following the success of previous shows in recent years, the play will be rerun at the Epstein Theater, as well as a number of new venues.
All adult tickets cost less than £20 depending on the site.
