'…Michael Strassen’s feisty, intelligent, sensationally well lit production…'
The Union Theatre stages the first London revival of Billy based on 'Billy Liar' by Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall
It's 1960 and post-war Britain is about to come out of a long tunnel into the swinging sixties. However young Billy is in industrial Yorkshire a million dreams from London. Juggling three women and a tense home life, Billy reverts to childlike fantasy and dares to imagine another kind of life in London with Liz.
Billy is staged and directed by Michael Strassen whose previous productions include Call Me Madam, The Fix, The Baker's Wife and Assassins (Best Production, Off-West End Awards 2011).
Music by John Barry
