Billy

Tuesday 4th to Saturday 8th November 2008

A musical based on`Billy Liar' by KEITH WATERHOUSE and WILLIS HALL
Written by DICK CLEMENT and IAN LA FRENAIS
Music by JOHN BARRY
Lyrics by DON BLACK

Presented by arrangement with JOSEF WEINBERGER LTD

ImageCelebrating the best of British theatre, Green Room was pleased to present this musical adaptation of Billy Liar, written by Dick Clement & Ian La Frenais (Auf Wiedersehen Pet, Porridge, The Likely Lads) and based on the play by Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall.  With music by John Barry and lyrics by Don Black, the score is full of toe-tapping numbers, rousing choruses and lyrical songs.

In 1960s Yorkshire, working class dreamer Billy Fisher tries to cope with his less than understanding Mum, Dad and Gran, his dead-end job as an undertaker’s clerk and his rapidly disintegrating love life. As he tries to juggle the demands of his family, his boss and three totally different girlfriends, Billy escapes into his fantasy land of Ambrosia.  There he can become a war hero, a successful scriptwriter, a talented film star and anything else that occurs to him.  But can Billy turn his fantasies into reality?

A wonderful musical which in its original West End run made a star of Michael Crawford and included a little known Elaine Page as one of Billy’s girlfriends!
