This month, the iconic St Luke’s Bombed Out Church in Liverpool will host a week-long festival of new theatre work, with magical stories and dark comedy. Little LTF is an outdoor theatre festival that hopes to be inspiring and uplifting. It’s the sister event to the annual Liverpool Theatre Festival which takes place in September.
So, what can you see at Little LTF? Well, there are 14 shows on offer over the week, from Monday 12th July to Sunday 18th July, so there’s plenty to choose from.
You can catch a family-friendly fairy tale about animals’ homes under threat. The Forgotten Forest is an interactive show that promotes the power of community. And you’re encouraged to go dressed as your favourite animal!
If you’re looking for something a bit darker, there’s outrageous comedy This Skin of Mine, which covers some hard-hitting themes. Another one for adult audiences is Superstar. It’s a comedy-drama that promises to be both raw and heartbreaking, with a dash of poetry and profanity.
But that’s not all. There’s a musical about the highs and lows of ADHD and a rock opera about libraries. Plus, there’s a drama uncovering family secrets, and a monkey with no bum!
Looking for more festivals to enjoy this summer? Try one of these!
