Park Life


Fri May 27 2022 at 07:30 pm to 10:15 pm


Casa Bar Liverpool | Liverpool, EN

One bench, nine writers, one play.
“I love this park. Look, you can see for miles. The cathedrals, the river, the ships…”
‘Parklife’ is a celebration of existence in all its strange variety. It explores the infinite possibilities we humans have to connect and bond with complete strangers. Accidental (and some less accidental) encounters lead to new friendships, re-visit old romances, ask unanswered questions, kindle hopes and foster dreams.
This old park bench has seen a lot of life. All sorts come to sit here, to meet here, work here, to escape. A lost boy who never knew his real dad, a wandering man who never met his son, an old lady who communes with the spirits, a confused man whose childhood was stolen. They all find a listening ear, a moment of connection and the promise of a better future.
Some come to remember, others to forget. Time passes, seasons change, the bench remains.
‘Parklife’ is a unique piece of drama; written by nine playwrights from the North West, it takes a sideways look at life, love, loss and longing. The characters we meet are much like the rest of us; for them, this bench is a place for letting go, for re-birth, or just for hanging around and having a laugh.
Whether you’re struggling to answer the biggest questions of the universe or just attempting to do twenty sweaty star jumps, this bench is the place for you!
Come and sit a while…
