The Quiet Little Englishman is the little known true story of how a bloke from St Helens headed off to Hollywood and developed the technology which gave us talking movies and changed cinema forever.

George’s career spanned decades, he recorded the first spoken words for the talkies in The Jazz Singer, through to the soundtrack for the film of the Woodstock Festival in ’69.

So it only seems right to celebrate the life, work and legacy of Oscar winning sound engineer George Groves at recovered cinema The Park Palace. Re-opening for this very special performance the Park Palace was built in 1893 and began its life as a music hall and variety theatre and was last used as a cinema in the 1950’s.

Zho Visual Theatre have created a living film to tell Georges story through a promenade style show filling the spaces with soundscapes, film and theatre. This will be followed by a very special discussion with the cast, writer and director with an opportunity to learn about the history of this fabulous theatre.

Directed By Paula Simms (Pinocchio). Music composed by Andy Frizell. Written by Esther Wilson (Ten Tiny Toes, Unprotected). The Park Palace of Dreams is in the Dingle, corner of Park and Mill Street, Liverpool, L8.
