Love, Liverpool - Summer 2021


The everyday stories that make our city extraordinary

If the fabric of this city is its people, then the stitching is the stories we share.Have you ever sat on a train, looked over at the person opposite you and thought; “Who are you?”  Love, Liverpool opens the door into the worlds of a group of strangers, their hopes and dreams, their loves and losses. Through intertwining moments of interaction and connection, they take you through a day in the life of our city.Inspired by our award-winning, collaborative project Love, Liverpool: An A-Z of Hope, this exciting live show threads together the stories and spaces in Liverpool we share. Local writer Chloë Moss brings to life the original letters, commissioned in lockdown, with new material and video design from Tracey Gibbs. Nathan Powell directs a cast of five local actors, capturing the energy and magic of our remarkable city.
