About Dreaming of a Barry White Christmas
This December, EchoTwo @Echo Arena Liverpool has a grown up festive treat in store for theatregoers when the only Christmas-themed show in town, Dreaming of a Barry White Christmas, premieres at the venue from Tue 17 – Sat 21 Dec 2013.
The first ever Christmas show fromrenowned Liverpool playwright Dave Kirby, whose hilarious hit shows include: ‘Lost Soul’, ‘Council Depot Blues’, ‘Reds and Blues’ and ‘Brick up the Mersey Tunnels’, Dreaming of a Barry White Christmas promises to be the perfect way to spice up the festive period!
Described as a‘ScouseScrooge’ comedy play andcrammed full with original classic hits from soul legend Barry White including ‘Love’s Theme’, ‘Can’t Get enough of your Love Babe’ and ‘It May Be Winter Outside’ plus other huge 70’s numbers, Dreaming of a Barry White Christmas is the coolest and funniest comedy of the season!
The show, which is not only written but also directed by Dave Kirby, stars Liverpool’s most prestigious home grown talent - Andrew Schofield (Brick Up The Mersey Tunnels, Lost Soul, Reds and Blues, Blood Brothers), Alan Stocks (Reds and Blues, Scouse Pacific, Little Scouse on the Prairie), Paul Duckworth (Reds and Blues, Scouse Pacific,Slappers and Slapheads) Lenny Wood (Lost Soul, Night Collar, Nightmare on Lime Street) and the hilarious Gillian Hardie and Keddy Sutton (Scottie Road the Musical).
Thomas Minge(Andrew Schofield) ownsa small, dilapidated warehouse in Liverpool. He despises everything - happiness, laughter, modern music, spending money - but most of all he hates Christmas. Meanwhile, hisfour drunken,dysfunctional employeescan’t wait to start the festive season!When they find out they’re about to be sacked by their miserable employer they set out to discover a way to ensure their survival. They soon uncovera few 1970’s skeletons in Thomas’s dirtycloset, including old platform shoes, a load of Viagra and the mysterious Hairy Mary! The arrival of a weird deranged tramp ensures some crazy festive hilarity!
What is Thomas Minge’s secret? What is he hiding? Why does he hate Christmas so much? Why does he regularly swill Carol singers? Will the workers escape the sack? Perhaps the legendary Walrus of Love himself, Barry White, holds the key.
Dave Kirby said: “I’ve had great fun writing this show and I hope the audience will have just as much of a laugh watching it! Make this show your first, your last and your everything this Christmas!”
So don’t be an old Scrooge, get yourself down to the Echo Arena this Christmas for a Barry good time.
