The Scousetrap

Liverpool’s Royal Court Theatre uncovers a sinister plot being hatched on home soil!

The Scousetrap has everything from crime drama to thriller to comedy. A murder mystery written by Kevin Fearon and Cal McCrystal, it takes place in Liverpool in 1940.

The Germans are trying to invade the city and the city’s greatest private detective, Miss Marble, has been called in to help.

Royal Court favourites Eithne Browne, Helen Carter, Zain Salim, Keddy Sutton and Liam Tobin are joined by new faces including David Benson, Gabriel Fleary and Jack Lane.

The Scousetrap starts September 23 and will run until October 29.
