One Night In Istanbul
STAGE PLAY “ONE NIGHT IN ISTANBUL” RETURNS FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY WITH VERY SPECIAL GUESTS
Doors open 6.30pm / show starts 7:30pm / approx finish 10:00pm
To celebrate the tenth anniversary of “that night” in Istanbul, Nicky Allt’s stage show is back for one special night on 27 May 2015.
This stage show sold out across ten nights when it was first in Liverpool and now it's back for one night only. This time around there will be a live band and the cast will be joined on stage by some very special guests including Jamie Carragher and Didi Hamman.
Scousers Tommy Kelly and Gerry Edwards are in Istanbul hoping their heroes are going to bring “big ears” back to its rightful home in Liverpool. Their two sons, Jamie and Joseph, search for tickets wanting to witness history in the making. A bag of money, Hitler’s cufflinks and a sexy Turkish chambermaid means it all kicks off in The Mamara Hotel and the journey takes an unexpected twist!
Jamie Carragher said, “A lot of fans made the tricky journey to Istanbul for the greatest night of our lives. Relive the funniest of those journeys in this hilarious stage show. I’ll even be making an appearance…look forward to seeing you”.
Writer Nicky Allt added, “This show is close to my heart as it brings all the memories flooding back. I can’t believe it’s ten years ago that we all made our way to The Ataturk Stadium not knowing that we were about to witness the greatest footballing story ever. No matter what we all encountered on our journey, Tommy and Gerry’s experience in this story takes some beating!”.
