Writer wins international Beatles play competition
by Tom Martin

A LITHERLAND writer has won a £150 prize in an international Beatles-themed play competition.

Patrick Maguire, 27, penned ‘You Are Lennon' and was judged to be the winner in the Ticket to Write festival despite facing off against two other plays.

All three were staged at Unity Theatre, in Liverpool, recently and were judged by theatre professionals Ian Kellgren and Clare Dow with the audience from both nights making a third judge.

Patrick said: “It was just really great to see the play staged and I'm delighted with the win”.

Patrick graduated from The Young Writers Course hosted by The Everyman and Playhouse Theatres in June 2014 and was a semi-finalist of Ticket to Write’s maiden festival.

Producer of the competition, Jamie Gaskin added: “All the plays were warmly applauded by the audience and I’m always humbled by the effort put in by the teams”.

Over its four years the Ticket to Write festival has attracted nearly 80 plays about The Beatles.
