St. Luke’s, the bombed out church
Bold St, Liverpool, Merseyside
St Luke’s Church is a former Anglican parish church which was badly damaged during the Liverpool Blitz in 1941, and remains as a roofless shell. It now stands as a memorial to those who were lost in the war, and is a stunning venue for this play.
The Crypt: 22nd – 27th SEPTEMBER 2014 at 7.30pm
The Crypt, St Andrew’s Church
5 St Andrew Street, London, EC4A 3AB
During the London Blitz in 1941, St Andrew’s church was bombed, leaving only the exterior walls and tower. However, it was restored “stone for stone and brick for brick” to Wren’s original designs. In 2001 the Crypt underneath the church was excavated and makes a magnificent venue.
