About the Event
Selected to perform at the main festival following its huge success at Little LTF festival of new works earlier this year. ‘97+’ is based on the 1989 Hillsborough Disaster were severe injuries lead to 97 lives lost.
Set in 2012, haunted by their memories, Hillsborough Survivors John and Steve, each deal with the trauma they suffered as young boys now as middle-aged men. John bottles up his emotions and only exposes these to his wife Liz, as he regularly suffers from night terrors but avoids seeking treatment from the doctors.
Opposed to Steve, who is in and out of hospital suffering from his multiple mental health issues where he is looked after by nurse Nancy, who appears to be the only person he sees as a friend. That is until he meets John, who’s charity pot in his newsagents sparks a conversation between the pair about their shared experiences. Despite countless setbacks, the Hillsborough Survivors continue their fight for justice.
