Billy Liar (Hand to Mouth Productions) – Saturday 22nd July 7.30pm

Billy Fisher has got a bit of a problem – three girlfriends, two fiancées and only one engagement ring. And then the truth seems to be having an inconvenient way of getting in the way of fiction – Billy’s fiction.  Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall’s story of a young man who prefers to mask mundane reality with a web of hilarious fantasy provided a breakthrough role for Albert Finney and Tom Courtney. Now a talented and enthusiastic young cast bring Hand to Mouth Production’s version of this modern comedy classic to the 21st century stage.
