Nigel Slater's Toast
Little Miss Sunshine

A busy autumn winter 2019/20 season at Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse sees musicals, plays and one night shows.

Opening the season at the Playhouse September 10–14 is Nigel Slater’s Toast, the stage adaptation of the food writer’s memoirs.

Developing a close working relationship with international theatre producers Selladoor, the production of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein will join other Selladoor productions Amélie (October 14–19) and Little Miss Sunshine (September 24–28) this autumn.

Young Everyman Playhouse (YEP) returns to the Everyman stage for the YEP Actors programme’s 21st production as it presents Road, Jim Cartwright’s debut play, from November 6–9.

A stage adaptation of Julia Donaldson’s Tabby McTat visits the Everyman October 10–12.

As part of Liverpool Comedy Festival, a host of top comedians will take to the stage at the Everyman.

The 2019 season is completed with the Everyman’s rock ‘n’ roll panto, with regular writers Sarah A Nixon and Mark Chatterton turning their anarchic style to Sleeping Beauty.

At the Playhouse, Gemma Bodinetz directs Miracle on 34th Street: The Musical.

In 2020, Susan Hill’s The Woman in Black returns to the Playhouse from January 27 to February 1.

A world première of Jonathan Harvey’s new writing Our Lady of Blundellsands, will be performed on the Everyman stage from March 7 to 28.
