One of Shakespeare’s most gripping plays, The Merchant of Venice is an unforgettable tale of mercy and justice, generosity and greed which confronts both the best and worst of human nature, and features one of his most reviled, complex and compelling characters – Shylock the moneylender.
Outdoor theatre is the most accessible and historical performance style and is a memorable way to spend a summer evening. The longest-established Open-Air Shakespeare company in the North West, Hillbark Players’ bi-annual presentations have both entranced and entertained Wirral audiences for almost fifty years. This year's compelling production, filled with the sublime poetry of love and bitter words of hate, is produced by the same team that created Hillbark's hugely-acclaimed 2009 production of Macbeth. Don’t miss it!
VIP Package available
Please select VIP tickets in Stand B
With the best seats in the house, a complimentary programme, indulge in Cava and canapés (strawberries and cream will be served for the Saturday matinee) in our VIP tent served by waitresses and waiters; or simply treat your family to an outing they’ll never forget. Whatever the occasion, our VIP Experiences will make you feel centre-stage.
Every theatre performance is unique, but this is especially the case with Open Air Theatre.
On rare occasions, it will not be possible for us to complete the performance, but we will never cancel a performance before the advertised start time. This is because you would be amazed how often it can rain all day and then clear up just in time for the action to start and indeed, how localised bad weather can be. Also we really don't want to disappoint anyone - audiences or our actors (who are always keen to perform, if at all possible).
In the event of a performance being cancelled or abandoned due to inclement weather, or any other circumstances beyond the control of Hillbark Players, no refund will be made. Tickets cannot be exchanged for other performances or returned for resale.

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
21st, 22nd & 23rd August 2013.
A totally unique experience combining Film and Theatre. Tickets are £12.50
IF YOU love One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest – get set for the play of the film of the play of the book.
Director Alan Veste and producer Phil Bimpson have taken the innovative step of presenting not the stage version of the classic Ken Kesey novel, but their interpretation of the film.
It’s the story of Randle Patrick McMurphy, who avoiding a short prison term, opts for the comparative comfort of a stay in an institution by declaring himself insane.
The tyrannical nurse Ratched has beaten the inmates into submission, but with his two friends Billy Bibbit and the hulking “chief” Bromden, McMurphy sets out to test the limits of the system and the extent of the nurse’s power.
In an innovative twist some brief location segments have been filmed and will be viewed by the audience on a screen before the action switches to the stage.

Based on the novels by Douglas Adams
“It’s a big thumbs up… A fun ride.”
Daily Mail, Patrick Marmion
Following a smash hit UK Tour in 2012, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is back in this ground-breaking new stage production - a radio show like you never saw before - packed with laughter, really wild sound effects, a live band, HD projections, and drinks with extremely silly names. Joining Simon Jones as Arthur Dent, and Hitchhiker’s favourites from the legendary Radio and TV casts, will be a VIP Guest Voice Of The Book (including in 2012 Terry Jones, Clive Anderson, Phill Jupitus and Andrew Sachs). “It was thrilling to see Hitchhiker’s performed live, especially with members of the original cast.”
Northampton Chronicle & Echo
“The show itself is a technical triumph taking every aspect of the show produced so far and placing it firmly in the 21st Century… this version is perhaps the best that I have witnessed so far.”
Sebastian Gahan, Liverpool Live
“9/10 – Don’t Panic!”
