About

Billy, a lower middle-class lad from Leeds has big ideas of fame and fortune, dreaming of being a TV star, Hollywood scriptwriter, Broadway dancer and even President of Ambrosia!

His family and employer, an undertaker, have to suffer the consequences of his fantasies and habitual lying, things coming to a head when he becomes engaged to two girls at the same time. Barbara, his `official' fiancée, whom he tries unsuccessfully to seduce, comes to tea with the family and announces wedding plans, but unfortunately her visit coincides with both the death of Billy's grandmother and a visit from his other `fiancée' Rita.

Based on Billy Liar by Keith Waterhouse.

Music by John Barry.

Script by Keith Waterhouse & Willis Hall.

Cast: George Stagnell, Juliet Waters, Susannah Baines, Nick Sephton, Flo Poskitt, Katie Melia, Gemma-Louise Keane, Craig Kirby, Rory Mulvihill, James Coldrick & Marie-Louise Surgenor.
