Back by popular demand, due to rave reviews from local press and the Everton fans.
The play celebrates over 125 years of the Club’s life at Goodison Park. Produced by Blue Park Productions, the play is written by Kenny O’Connell and is based around the Everton Lock-Up, or Prince Rupert’s Tower as it is known locally, which has stood at the peak of Everton Brow since 1787 and also sits proudly on the Club’s crest.
In the plot of the play, the Club has organised an event outside the ‘lock-up’ to promote the Club’s move to a new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock. Two Evertonians, transpire to lock themselves in the tower due to a storm with the aim to find the lost gold of ‘Prince Rupert’. While locked in they stumble across a secret tunnel and unwittingly release the ghosts of Everton and the City’s past including Dixie Dean, Molly Bushell, Prince Rupert and Bessie Braddock. Each ghost takes them on a historical journey, and they discover the true meaning behind being inside the heart of Everton’s badge. Charity worker Speedo Mick stars in this performance.
John O'Connell, formerly of Groundpig, will perform a 30-minute guitar recital pre-show 7-7.30pm. The main show starts at 7.45pm.
