Playhouse Theatre, Liverpool

Hot on the heels of last year’s sell out shows, comes an exciting new production of Finger Food Shorts and another exclusive, unmissable night of theatre and entertainment in Liverpool.

For this our second year, Finger Food Shorts explores the theme of Boundaries through a diverse and exciting collection of monologues penned by a thrilling line up of fabulous Northern writers.


Six writers, emerging and/or established in their own fields:

A local performer of dance, poetry & music. A storyteller who is most definitely NOT a poet. An actor who sings. An activist & trouble-causer. An award winning journalist & author and a screenwriter for TV & film.


With huge thanks to the Everyman & Playhouse Theatres, Arts Council England & with support from National Lottery Project Grants

PJ Smith

PJ (aka Roy) is a storyteller. For stage, page and screen. No matter how hard he tries, he seems to always end up writing about insecure men responding to imaginary threats. The characters in his stories are in no way, shape or form based on himself. Definitely not. PJ is not a poet.
