The Comeback Special
Written by Ian Salmon
Directed By Mike Dickinson
Two scallies, a lot of weed and the ghost of Elvis. Just a normal Saturday night in Fazakerley.
Robbie has a power. It’s not unique, his nan had it too; maybe if she’d listened to the ghost in the white jumpsuit Robbie wouldn’t have to put up with him. But then the fame, the fortune, the girl, and the lad who wants to kill him wouldn’t be there and he’s more than happy with three of those things.
