LOST SOUL WRITTEN BY DAVE KIRBY


Having co-written with Nicky Allt Liverpool’s most popular play of recent years, Brick Up The Mersey Tunnels, Dave Kirby has turned out another winner thanks to his skill of being able to produce a super-tight script that begs for memorable performances from some of the city’s finest actors.

Lost Soul is a brutally funny comedy about getting older but not getting any wiser. Two Liverpool couples have grown up but have they also grown apart? Strong friendships and strong relationships are put to the test accompanied by a soundtrack of 70s soul music, with by far the strongest performance coming from Andrew Schofield playing Smigger, a man refusing to grow up despite the best efforts of those around him. Schofield’s delivery and timing are impeccable and can rank amongst the finest on any stage, anywhere.

Superb too is Lindzi Germaine, who as Donna, Smigger’s frustrated wife, has a presence that is tailor made for such a scenario and she fills the role with every breath.

With Eithne Browne as the errant Pat and Neil Caple as the cheated Terry supplying the pathos that helps make the play work on so many levels, it is Lenny Wood who comes close to stealing the show as the typical student barman with some superb throw away lines and actions.

Directed with typical aplomb by Bob Eaton, Lost Soul is guaranteed to have audiences flocking to the box office, with Dave Kirby quite rightly gaining a quick reputation as a writer of the highest calibre.
