A politically-charged production of Sweeney Todd (April 12 to May 18) comes to the Liverpool Everyman stage in April.

Liam Tobin (Everyman Company 2017 and 2018) plays the title role, with full cast to be announced in the New Year. The production is joined by collaborations with other theatre-makers.

In association with Hull Truck Theatre and Middle Child, the venue presents the première of Us Against Whatever (March 20 to 23).

Joining the already announced Abigail’s Party and Girl on the Train, is a new production of the award-winning comedy Stones in His Pockets (March 18 to 23).

Comedy Caroline’s Kitchen visits Liverpool ahead of a transfer to New York. Starring Caroline Langrishe, Aden Gillett and James Sutton, the story follows Caroline Mortimer, a TV chef with a seemingly perfect life off-screen.

The Everyman will also host the national Family Arts Conference on February 12 for creative professionals to explore to value of arts and culture for families across the UK.
