News   Alan Dosser to Direct World Premiere of Ernest Hall's Liars' Market in London
 
Veteran director Alan Dosser, who ran the Liverpool Everyman Theatre during its heyday in the early 70s as a major seedbed for acting and writing talent, will return to the London stage to direct the world premiere of Ernest Hall's Liars' Market, beginning performances at Southwark's Union Theatre April 27 (prior to an official opening April 29), for a limited season through May 15.

During Dosser's reign at the Everyman, he assembled a company of actors that included Pete Postlethewaite, Trevor Eve, Mathew Kelly, Antony Sher, Alison Steadman, George Costigan, Bernard Hill, Julie Walters, Bill Nighy and Jonathan Pryce. He premiered plays by writers that included Alan Bleasdale and Willy Russell. According to press materials, the new play, by former stage-manager-turned-writer Ernest Hall, revolves around the lives of four individuals living and working in 1947 post-war Bradford. They are yearning for excitement and dreaming of a future that seems to lie just as far out of their reach as it was before the World War.

The cast comprises Lucy Beaumont, Jamie Kenna, Howard Teale and Anny Tobin. The production is designed by Charlike Cridlan, with lighting by Mark Pritchard and sound by Colin Brown. It is produced by John Rogerson for JMK Productions, in association with the Union Theatre.
