Lips That Touch Liquor by Lesley Wilson (Open Rehearsal)
Part of TalkFest Perth
A limited number of free tickets are available to observe an open rehearsal from 2pm and see what what happens behind the scenes in the creation of a new play. The script development and open rehearsal will be led by Peter Arnott with a company of professional actors.
Set in Scotland at the beginning of the 20th century, Lips That Touch Liquor is a tale of love, loss and sacrifice and tells the story of one woman's determination to improve the lot of her family and those around her. Challenging the alcohol trade head on, Isabella Tudhope joins the Temperance Movement and fights to shut down the local bars that 'pick the pockets ae the men afore they get hame,'. She dreams of a better life in America, 'whaur the land is free and the air that fresh' but she soon comes into conflict with more than the local barmaid.
