Belper Players stage Billy Liar

Belper Players are reviving a classic British comedy from the 60s at the Strutt Centre in Belper from April 18-21.

Billy Liar is the stage adaptation of Keith Waterhouse’s famous novel, telling the story of Billy, a young man who turns to fantasy as he dreams of breaking away from his working-class northern roots.

Director Jane Wilton has been inspired by the music of the times and says that all may not be as it appears in her production of the play.

The audience is invited to get into the mood by dressing in the style of the times.

Performances are at 7.30pm with a matinee performance on the Saturday at 2.30pm.
