1984 December Billy Liar

By Keith Waterhouse & Willis Hall
5th – 11th December 1984
Director Ron Dickens

“Billy Liar was first presented in the Cambridge Theatre, London in September 1960. The play came right at the start of the 1960s and was a leading part of the whole Theatre of Realism movement that started with Look Back in Anger , and was, with the Beatles and Carnaby Street, to become the Swinging Sixties Scene in London. We have here a caterpillar, Billy, who knows he is a butterfly but, who in spite of himself, cannot break away from the comfort of the chrysalis.”
