THE LEAVING OF LIVERPOOL

A Play with Music

by DAVID SCOTT and JEREMY JAMES TAYLOR

Music by RICHARD BRETT

Cast: 33 speaking parts (26 m, 7 f) ; one (m) is demanding.
Suggested Age Range: 11 upwards - best with a wide range.
Approx. Running Time: 105 minutes [ + intervals]
Music: A mixture of group and solo items of varying range; accompaniment written for seven-piece ensemble but could be simplified.
Set: Prologue in an Irish hovel; Act I on a Liverpool dockside; Act II on board ship. The date is 1850.
Synopsis: The desperation and anticipation which pushed on the emigrants from Ireland and the exploitation of children by those profiting from the transatlantic trade combine to create a gripping drama which is splendidly balanced with beautiful ballads and sparky humour.
Every character is quickly identified and provides scope for young actors to work together in a tight production of one of the National Youth Music Theatre's acclaimed successes.
