Following its critically acclaimed sell-out premiere at Liverpool Theatre Festival in September, Swan Song, a comedy by playwright Jonathan Harvey starring Unity Patron Andrew Lancel, will reopen Unity’s live theatre programme for socially distanced audiences.
Swan Song is a bittersweet, one-man comedy written by Jonathan Harvey and starring actor Andrew Lancel. 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.
