Those Two Weeks

Written by Ian Salmon
Directed by Mike Dickinson ★★★★★ - Liverpool Sound and Vision 
★★★★★ - Good News Liverpool Ian Salmon is a Liverpool born playwright/writer, Anfield season ticket holder from a long line of Liverpool fans, Anfield Wrap and Radio City contributor. He’s the writer of ‘They Say Our Days Are Numbered’ and this is his fourth play, ‘Those Two Weeks’. ‘Those Two Weeks’ is set in the two weeks immediately prior to the day of the Hillsborough disaster. It’s not a play about the tragedy at Hillsborough, although it is a play which deals with the day in relation to one fictional family. Ian didn't want to tell the story of the 96 who were lost on the day; he didn’t feel he had the right to as it’s their story. He didn’t feel he had the right to tell the story of his brothers’ or his father’s experiences on the day; his brothers were in the end pen and his father was in the stand. 
He knows how fortunate his family were. 
The stories that he could tell were those of his mother and his then girlfriend-now wife, both of whom were at home and a great deal of the story is based on his wife’s story; it’s how it was for her coming into a family that supported a team that wasn’t hers; it’s about honouring her relationship with his parents, with his family. He could also tell the story of what Liverpool was like before. That’s the story that he chose to tell; one family, with the normal issues that families encounter, a story of how children are much more like their parents than they think and how their parents have had lives that were more than just what their children saw. 
It’s about listening to Cowboy Junkies and The Reynolds Girls, reading science fiction and arguing over the red/blue divide, realising your generation didn’t invent this stuff and you’re more like your parents than you think. It’s about new love and old love, coming together and falling apart. It’s about trying to make everything right that you made wrong. It’s the end of the eighties and everything’s about to change. It’s only two weeks, but it’s Those Two Weeks
