Welcome to The Comeback Special, a story that exists in a mythical, magical place called Fazakerley and tells the tale of a bunch of scallies, a lot of weed, a ridiculous amount of swearing and the ghost of somebody who may (or may not) be ‘The King of Rock’n’Roll’.
The Comeback Special is currently working towards its upcoming 2018 production, as well as an imminent future tour. Our aim is to deliver this piece of theatre to a multitude of venues, from Liverpool to Edinburgh. The Comeback Special first found success with its win of the Highly Commended Award at The Liverpool Hope Playwriting Prize before making its debut and being a sell out show for three nights at The Cornerstone Festival, receiving a roaring success. Now this delicious piece of theatre has been selected by the new Hope Street Theatre to be performed again, and we do not intend for its success to cease here. We have set up this crowdfunding campaign in order to accumulate vital set pieces for this September production, as well as for its inevitable tour. The set assembled for The Comeback Special will be heading out onto the road with our scallies and Elvis, so long as we make the funds.
Funds donated to this cause will thus be utilised to gather touring set pieces, as well as to assist our dreams of showing the world how hilariously poignant this piece of writing truly is.
