Something's up with Maggie. She's rattling around in the house on Hope Place that she's lived in all her life. Her brothers and sisters flew the nest long ago but everyone's still got a key. Brother Jack keeps turning up with his own Liverpool folklore, invented to delight foreign tourists, but all Maggie wants is to unlock the past and free herself. Her niece's new boyfriend might just have the answer.
Michael Wynne's Hope Place was specially commissioned for the opening season of the Everyman Theatre, Liverpool, and premiered there in May 2014.
