Twopence To Cross The Mersey
Adapted from Helen Forrester’s million-selling autobiography, Twopence To Cross The Mersey is a stunning period drama set in the early 1930’s in the midst of the Great Depression.
In 1931 Helen’s spendthrift father was declared bankrupt, forcing the family to leave behind the nannies, servants and beautiful middle-class home in the gentler South West of England. With nothing more than the clothes they stood up in, the family of nine took the train to Liverpool where they hoped to rebuild their shattered lives.
