A programme of 14 new works to be premiered at the inaugural Little LTF event in Liverpool this Summer has been revealed.
Little LTF is a new strand to the hugely successful Liverpool Theatre Festival, which was staged for the very first time last September in response to an ongoing need for live entertainment during Covid-19.
The outdoor festival at St Luke’s Bombed Out Church in Liverpool city centre was created by Liverpool theatre producer Bill Elms, who stepped in to bring entertainment back to audiences after theatres across the country were ordered to close their doors as part of the first Coronavirus lockdown in March 2020.
The festival was so well received last Autumn, that Bill was determined to take the event to the next level by introducing an open call for artists to submit new work with a chance to be premiered and showcased at its sister event.
Little LTF will run for seven days between Monday 12 July and Sunday 18 July 2021 – all productions included in the line-up will be seen by Liverpool audiences for the very first time at the festival.
The outdoor event will be staged within the church walls at St Luke’s Bombed Out Church, a new set-up than the September festival, creating a more intimate, unique, covered Covid-secure performance space.
The 14 successful shows chosen for the Little LTF programme are on sale now. To book tickets visit the festival website at www.liverpooltheatrefestival.
