 After 2 sell out performances of our double bill we collected over £400 for the HOPE CHARITY which helps the homeless of Liverpool.


Peter Grant, theatre critic for the Wirral Globe awarded 4 stars for the double bill, he was particularly impressed with the original play script, Bev Clark's Baggage.

"a play that could sit well in Jimmy McGovern’s Moving On series."

Jean Hill for theatre blog Good News Liverpool, described Baggage as:

"beautifully acted and very moving." 

of the Jane Austen piece "Ladies In Bonnets" :

"beautifully brought alive, the cast did full justice to Austen’s wonderful creations."



Hand In Hand Theatre present a double-bill of two very different plays about women in another thought-provoking production – The Woman’s Voice.

Ladies in Bonnets a celebration of Jane Austen in extracts and readings adapted by Bev Clark. Two hundred years after her death, Jane still gives us witty, honest and entertaining observations on certain women of her time.

Baggage, a new play by Bev Clark. Two women both have their own emotionally charged baggage. Tragedy and homelessness find hope in an uneasy friendship

Julia Gibson, who is ladies captain for the Wallasey Golf Club has also made this her charity as she has a team of people who go out with hot food and clothing each week. We wanted to help her raise money for this worthy cause.

December 2016

wirral globes arts ambassador theatre trophyHand in Hand Theatre are celebrating receiving yet another award to add to their trophy shelf for 2016. The Wirral Globe newspaper has awarded them A WIRRAL ARTS AMBASSADOR AWARD to celebrate all their achievements; especially for their work with Shakespeare. The group have been associated with the RSC Open Stages project since 2012, presenting Shakespeare-themed productions that have been performed not only across Wirral but also across England.

Always known for their innovative concepts and new writing projects this year’s production R.I.P. Mr Shakespeare was a comedy cavalcade of Shakespearean quotes seen through the eyes of The Bard’s disgruntled servant. The script was written by Artistic Director Bev Clark and co-director Keith Hill, who also played the part of Dennis the servant.  After winning the Leverhulme Drama Festival in April, they went on to win the semi-final of the All England Theatre Festival and then went to the English Finals in Maidenhead bringing home the trophy for “exceptional creativity”. Then in the summer Hand in Hand were invited to perform at the week-long National Drama Festival Association’s All Winners final. Finally, they came back to St George’s hall in Liverpool and received five star reviews.

The script is now published by New Flight Publications on and available to buy on Amazon and has already been taken up by a youth group on The Isle of Man.

Hand in Hand are now rehearsing an entertainment for The Hoylake and West Kirby Roundtable Charity and starting to plan a production for 2018 when they will be celebrating their tenth anniversary.
