Ellen & Rigby
Homebaked—the Musical

Liverpool’s Royal Court has three new shows on sale.

A brand new comedy by Gerry Linford, the return of Boisterous Theatre’s adaptation of John Godber’s Bouncers and a co-production, previously-announced, with Red Ladder Theatre Company for a new show about Anfield’s Homebaked Bakery.

Ellen & Rigby runs from July 2–31. Written by Gerry Linford (Yellow Breck Road, The Menlove Avenue Murder Mystery) and starring Royal Court favourites Lindzi Germain and Andrew Schofield, it’s a comedy about two lonely people brought together in an unlikely way.

Bouncers is back from August 13 to September 11. Ralph, Les, Judd and Lucky Eric see it all and hear it all. Tonight they are going to tell you all.

The final show of the season will be Homebaked—The Musical (September 24 to October 23), a co-production with Red Ladder Theatre Company, bringing the story of Liverpool’s famous co-operative bakery to the stage.

Tickets for each show will start at £14 and meals are available before the show for an extra £12. The theatre will adhere to all COVID regulations that will be in place at the time. If the show is postponed or audiences cannot attend for reasons related to the pandemic, then full refunds will be available.

The theatre will also be bringing back their community programme. The free Youth Theatre returns from this week with a free summer school for young people planned in August. The free to access Royal Court Community Choir will be returning as soon as safe to do so.
