Raffa Productions present A Play of Two Halves: Beating Berlusconi! - one night in Istanbul by John Graham Davies.

Tickets £8.50 / £6.50 concessions.

Istanbul, May 25 2005 - the ghosts of Shankly, Paisley and Fagan prepare for resurrection ...

Despite threats from his wife and bank manager, in May 2005 middle-aged Kenny Noonan travels to Istanbul to watch Liverpool play AC Milan in the Champions' League final. What Liverpool FC achieved in the second half is dramatic legend. What happened to Kenny in the bowels of the Ataturk stadium is stranger than fiction.

Beating Berlusconi is based on a bizarre real event - a Scouser ending up sitting next to Italy's Prime Minister as the lads on the pitch turned the world upside-down.

A laugh out loud, true story of a man's attempt to rediscover his belief in himself, his club, and his city - a must see for all comedy-lovers and football fans.

"A real page-turner that perfectly captures the city" - writer Jimmy McGovern

"Brilliant dialogue, and very, very funny" - actor Tony Booth
