Twopence to Cross the Mersey

Tour synopsis, cast & creatives

Twopence to Cross the Mersey
This much loved account tells the true story of a young girl and her formerly wealthy family as they are suddenly thrown into poverty during the Great Depression of the 1930's. Leaving behind the nannies, servants and comfortable middle-class life in the South West of England, they uproot their shattered lives and choose Liverpool as the city to restart and rebuild their dreams and fortune. Unbeknown to them however, they are in for a terrible shock. Loved by millions, see Helen's dramatic, moving and heart-warming tale come to life as she and her family are forced to survive in the slums amongst the streetwise working class. . Revised production.
