Liverpool writer Jo Mac wrote this play in memory of her nan, who like so many others on Merseyside lived through the horrors of war time bombing.  ‘Red Skies’ has been performed to sell out houses over the past 2 years at the Unity Theatre and it was felt by the writer she needed to do something to honour the 70th anniversary of The Battle Of The Atlantic, which will be celebrated on Merseyside in May 2013.  The play deals with the laughter and the tears, the frustrations and loves ordinary people felt during those uncertain times and also brings into sharp focus how ordinary scousers and members of the forces land, sea and air coped with day to day living.

The play will be performed at the Concert Room, St. George’s Hall from the 24-27 May and tickets are priced at £14 with concessions at £12.  Tickets can be obtained via Tourist Information Centres at St. George’s Hall – tel 0151 225 6909, The Albert Dock Liverpool or at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.  We really do need everyone’s support for this production and we usually donate post show to The Fire Services charity in memory of those personnel of the AFS and those who lost their lives fighting fires during the Blitz.  The cast of 15 and production crew are honoured to be involved in remembering such important times.  Any questions, Alan will be happy to answer – tel 0151 922 2922.
