Lockdown 2020 has given Gail the time and space to complete her latest stage play - 'WAITING'.
This is a historical drama focusing on Peter Wright, a working Carter, and his extended family during the Blitz in Bootle and Liverpool during WW2. The inspiration came from Gail's grandfather who was a Carter on the docks throughout WW2, and also from the magnificent full size bronze statue of a shire horse called 'Waiting', created by Judy Boyt, which now stands at the Albert Dock in Liverpool.
The statue is the result of a long 10-year fund raising campaign and is a monument honouring the city’s hard-working dock horses and carters that worked in the city for 250 years, and were integral during the petrol-rationed days of World War II in keeping supplies moving in the UK.
'Waiting' has benefitted from a well received online play reading by Tip Top Productions in 2020, but has yet to reach the stage due to
lockdown and the current pandemic.
Fingers crossed we will all be back in theatres by 2022 !
