It’s a busy week for new plays in Liverpool, and another to add to the list is Last Train to Yuma, opening at the Lantern on Wednesday (May 14).
The play tells the story of comedy duo Lemmon and McGarvey – as ten year olds, they won the biggest TV talent show of the day and were hailed as the next big thing. Fast forward twenty years and they’re in their 30s, broke, living on past glories, and bottom of the bill in whatever dive will still hire them. Then, along comes fellow comedienne Jose, with the offer of a lifetime. But will it make them or break them?
Written and directed by Drew Quayle, writer of 2009 Royal Court hit The Salon, Last Train to Yuma stars Keddy Sutton of Caz and Britney fame, Daniel Hayes, star of the last year’s, Waiting For Brando, and John Sweeps May, co-star of upcoming Damien Lewis film, Will, and the face of the Bet Fred commercials (it sez ‘ere).
It’s on until Saturday, May 17, with 2-4-1 tickets on opening night. Visit the Lantern Theatre website for more details.
