Nick Leather’s new football play Billy Wonderful, which opens 12th  March at the Liverpool Everyman Theatre, started its tour of Merseyside schools today in Halewood.  The play charts the progress of young Billy as he makes his debut for the Blues against the Reds in the hotly contested Derby.  The play today goes on the road with a series of “away” matches before coming “home” to the Everyman next month, where the show runs until 4th April.

TARGETSPORTS acted as advisor to the Liverpool Everyman Theatre in the early stages of the play’s development with regard to aspects of authenticity to ensure the fictional piece became as realistic as possible.  Using our extensive football industry network we were able to quickly gain access to local Premier League Football Clubs and their personnel who in turn gave invaluable insight to the plays author.

Tickets cost from just £12 and can be booked online.  For more information visit the Liverpool Everyman Theatre’s website.  You can also follow Billy on Twitter at:
