Are you single? A TV
show wants to hear from you today!
THE TV film company Twofour are an
award winning TV production company behind shows like:- 'Educating
Yorkshire' that was shown on Channel 4, along with 'The Jump' on ITV, and
they are about to start filming a new show! "The show will be a
warm hearted and genuine look at the ups and downs of real relationships,
paying specific attention to individuals who are struggling to move on from
a past relationship. It’s very much a constructive take on how resolving any
issues after a relationship makes it easier to move forward in a positive
way. This will be a sensitive documentary and away from the world of trashy,
reality TV. The programme will be thought provoking, honest and therapeutic.
We hope to help individuals by bringing ex-partners together in a safe
environment so they can ask the questions they have always wanted
answering." said Lucy, the shows Development Researcher. If

The Ale House is back in
Photos by Kiss Light
FRESH from its recent regional
success, raucous comedy, 'The Ale House' is back in the City
where it was 1st brewed, from Thursday, 25 February 2015 to Saturday, 19
Actors, Philip Olivier and Jake Abraham,
who recently starred in a production of the show which went down a storm at
the St Helens Theatre Royal, have decided a 2nd round is in order.
They have joined forces to co-direct their own version of the hilariously
rowdy show from Furlong and Power, the writers of Night Collar, which will
be a special site-specific staging at The Dome in Grand Central on
Liverpool’s Renshaw Street.
It will be the 1st experience of directing for the duo who are certainly no
strangers to the stage or screen. Philip and Jake have many years’ acting
experience between them with Phillip having starred in TV shows Brookside
and Benidorm and Jake appearing in Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and
Game of Thrones to name but a few.
And they are very excited to be directing their 1st comedy play at The Dome
in Grand Central Hall on Renshaw Street which they describe as:-
“Liverpool’s hidden gem!”
Philip Olivier said:- “The comedy
has been really successful so far because it’s so true to life. It portrays
life in a typical boozer with all the characters and shenanigans that go on.
And of course it is what this talented bunch of actors have brought to the
table, definitely the funniest show I have worked on. Jake and I have been
given the opportunity to direct and we are grasping it with both hands!"
The Ale House gives the audience a glimpse inside a local drinking
establishment and become familiar with the regular clientele.
Talented actress Lindzi Germain is behind the bar as the big hearted
landlady Lucy, serving an eclectic mix of crazy characters. Meet Yogi
(Philip Olivier), your typical bragging looney tune and Trevor (Jake
Abraham) a Tourettes suffering war veteran with uncannily timed ticks.
Throw in Kick Off played by George Wilson,
a punch drunk bruiser, Robbo played by James McMartin with the hangover from
hell and dodgy guts, Les O’Dochartaigh as Father Flaherty, Bernie Foley as
Mary and Nelly and Kivan Dene as Hawker and Les, not to mention pint
guzzling old Joe played by Nick Birkinshaw and you have a comedy mix of
funny characters you may find familiar from your local pub.
The comedy is set on New Year’s Day, the day after the night before and the
shenanigans that follow will have you crying with laughter. Combined with a
touching narrative and music that with have you dancing in the aisles, this
face-achingly funny show is not to be missed!
Jake Abraham explained that:- “It’s the same old story that audiences
know and love but with a few new twists. We’ve made a few changes to the
choreography and lighting and we’ve added more musical numbers, as well as a
fantastic studio set with a real working bar!”
Tickets are priced £20 with special preview offers and are on sale from The
Dome, Central Hall, on Renshaw Street, Liverpool. To book call:- 0844 8000
