for Liverpool's Sgt. Pepper @ 50 Festival (2017)

*An Intimate Performance in Living Rooms of Liverpool 8*

She's Leaving Home is a brand new show, inspired by the legendary Beatles song, and is part of Liverpool’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Researched and developed with young adults in Liverpool, the play explores themes around home, housing and family.

Taking place in people’s living rooms in the Liverpool 8 area, She’s Leaving Home promises to be a breathtaking and intimate performance featuring local performer (and ex 20 Stories High youth theatre member) Brodie Arthur with puppetry by Zoe Hunter and music by internationally renowned cellist Semay Wu.

A collaboration with the fantastic Phelim McDermott from Improbable.


"She's Leaving home may just be the festival highlight"

"The terraced house in which we sit transforms into a magical realist world, sensitively realised under Julia Samuels’s direction" 

Clare Brennan, The Observer ****

"Thought-provoking immersive theatre created by, for and in the community"
