Critically Acclaimed Play Returns To The Epstein Theatre This Month.

Last Train to Auschwitz, which has played at the Hanover Street venue in 2015 and 2017, tells the story of a group of women’s journey into hell. Their final destination is the notorious concentration camp Auschwitz.

The emotional narrative will be played out on stage by an incredible selection of Liverpool’s top acting talent including Brookside star Bernie Foley, who is best known for playing Margie Shadwick in the Channel 4 soap.

Bernie is no stranger to the stage having starred in several other Liverpool productions including Brick Up: The Wirral Strikes Back, as well as the 1996 television film Hillsborough.

The scars of war never truly fade and that is arguably the truest sentiment when it comes to the devastation visited upon Liverpool and Bootle during the dark days of The Blitz. Any visitor to the city, any person who has lived in the two neighbouring towns, will still be overawed by the monuments to the dead and the long nights endured by the people during the campaign to bring the people to their knees.
