Billy Liar

by Keith Waterhouse & Willis Hall
May 30th & 31st & June 1st & 2nd 2012

Erin Arts Centre, Port Erin

Adapted from Keith Waterhouse's novel, this play is a slice of family life in the Fisher household. Set in 1960 in a northern industrial town, three generations inhabit the Fisher home. \Grandma, firmly rooted in her gritty Northern past, lives with daughter Alice and son-in-law Geoffrey who have moved up the social scale, from cobbled streets to the leafy suberbia of lower middle class. enjoyment of this status is marred by their dreamy son, Billy, whose constant fantastical stories drive them to distraction, but serve Billy to escape from the reality of his stifling home life and dreary job as an undertakers clerk.
