Liverpool’s Beatles attractions support new Epstein play

A LONG-AWAITED play about the man behind the Fab Four was given the seal of approval from four of the city’s biggest Beatles attractions.
The Cavern, The Beatles Story, Hard Day’s Night Hotel and the Magical Mystery Tour are all onboard as partners for the theatrical production based on the life of legendary Beatles manager Brian Epstein.
Epstein The Play will run from November 15 until December 1 at the city’s Epstein Theatre.
The play is part of the official programme of the 50th anniversary celebrations of The Beatles and was written by Andrew Sherlock and created and directed by Jen Heyes.
Co-producer Bill Elms said: “We are delighted to have the support of these iconic Beatles organisations for Epstein the Play.
“It shows how Liverpool businesses work together to enhance the city’s tourism and cultural experience. Our vision is for the production to become as equally internationally recognised as these well established Beatles institutions.”
The play charts Brian Epstein’s adult life and illustrious career from his drama school days to managing the world’s biggest pop group.
Born in Liverpool in 1934 from Jewish descent, he spent his early adult years working for the family business NEMS (North End Music Stores) before being drafted into the Royal Army Service Corps. After a brief stint in London joining RADA, he returned to Liverpool and managed the new NEMS city centre music store.
