Having performed at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringes, Liberty Rides Forth! will make its London debut at the Waterloo East Theatre from the 2nd October.
Liberty, a mischievous drag queen, unexpectedly springs to life from the pages of Trevor’s new novel. The hapless author is attempting to write a best-seller to win over Susie, the woman he loves from afar; but now suddenly he and the three apprentice Muses sent to inspire him are fighting for Susie’s very survival!
The musical has been written and composed by David Kent, who has had his songs performed in New York, at the Yale Cabaret Conference, and in Los Angeles. Cabaret artist and West End star Morag McLaren has performed a song specially written for her in her show at Pizza on the Park, and David Meulemanns has built two one-man shows around his music, performing them at New York’s Metropolitan Room, and London’s The Pheasantry and Crazy Coqs.
This brand new musical comedy is directed by Susan Raasay who has worked at the Pleasance Theatre, Southwark Playhouse and Bridewell Theatre. She directed Liberty Goes Forth! for the Brighton and Edinburgh productions.
For the production’s run at the Waterloo East Theatre, the cast will include veteran panto performer Dereck Walker as Liberty, while Trevor will be played by William Hazell.
