Beryl and Sandra were the Liver Birds, the embodiment of 1970s swinging Liverpool. Red and blue, north and south, posh and streetwise, the world was theirs for the taking. But one stayed… and the other left.
Forty years after they tore up the city, the Liver Birds are reunited as if nothing has changed, but everything has. Can things be like they used to be - or are their lives like a bag of broken biscuits?
This brand new musical rivals anything that the city has produced in the past, taking a look at Carla Lane’s perfect pair and how they have lived, loved and grown up. Liver Birds Flying Home will make you laugh, cry and laugh again as you hum along to Mike Lindup and Barb Jungr’s haunting melodies.
Liver Birds may fly high but they always fly home.
