Hightown Drama Group present
Billy Liar
by Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall

Set in the industrial north in the 1960's, Billy Liar is about a rebellious youth who just can't tell the truth! Everyone gets drawn into Billy's fantasy world as he lies his way from one situation to the next. Billy's favourite tale seems to be that someone or other has "had their leg off".

It is best to type or print your press release double spaced with wide margins to allow room for the reporter to make notes. Only print on one side of the paper.

Even if you suggest that they contact you for more information, do not rely on hearing from them, always telephone or call in and check up on them!
