⭐ JONATHAN HARVEY’S SWAN SONG UK TOUR ANNOUNCED – STARRING ANDREW LANCEL ⭐
Jonathan Harvey’s Swan Song will embark on a short tour this year, playing at venues opening to socially distanced audiences, it has been announced.
Following its critically acclaimed sell-out premiere at Liverpool Theatre Festival in September, The play will open at Liverpool’s Unity Theatre, this will be the first live performances at the theatre since closing in March.
The show then moves on to Dukes Lancaster, Alty Fringe at the Garrick Playhouse in Altrincham, The Cresset in Peterborough and the Belgrade in Coventry. More dates are to be confirmed soon, with a longer tour planned for Spring 2021.
Swan Song is a bittersweet, one-man comedy written by Jonathan Harvey (Beautiful Thing) and starring actor Andrew Lancel (Coronation Street). The play is directed by BAFTA award-winning director Noreen Kershaw and produced by Bill Elms.
Set in Liverpool, it is Christmas 1997, the world is changing and in the staff room, Gay, forty-something, English teacher Dave Titswell finds that not all change is welcome. He has a crush, but life, love, and work are never straight forward for Dave. Will a school trip to The Lakes change things for the better, or make things decidedly worse? Swan Song will make audiences laugh, but equally pull at the heartstrings. Everyone knows someone like Dave – or could even be a Dave themselves.
Swan Song was first staged at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1997, before transferring to Hampstead Theatre.
I love Jonathan Harvey’s work, so I’d love to see this! ! !
