Wirral actor to play Brian Epstein in forthcoming Beatles play

An actor from Port Sunlight, Christopher Lee-Power, is to play Beatles manager Brian Epstein in a forthcoming play ‘At the End’, which focuses on the final days of the Fab Four.

Inspired by ‘The Beatles – Off The Record‘ by acclaimed Beatles biographer Keith Badman and by the words of the Beatles themselves, ‘At The End’, portrays the break-up of the most famous band in the history of pop music.

​’The Beatles – Off The Record’ is the most comprehensive oral history of The Beatles ever published – an ‘as it happened’ story of the greatest pop group of them all. Featuring a wealth of quotes from the Sixties by John, Paul, George and Ringo themselves and a host of others who were close to the group during the heady days of Beatlemania and beyond.

Christopher Lee-Power, pictured above with the new Brian Epstein statue, told birkenhead.news, “I have been intrigued with Brian Epstein for a long time. Brian is from a Jewish family and as well as being the manager of the Beatles, Cilla Black, Gerry and the Pacemakers, etc., he packed so much into his 33 years until his death on 27 August 1967.

“Last Saturday I had the privilege of seeing the unveiling of the Brian Epstein statue. What a wonderful honour for him and our great city, Liverpool.

The ‘At the End’ premiere will take place in Liverpool next year. There will, however, be a private reading of the play in the former home of George Harrison in advance of the premiere.

​Answer a Beatles quiz question to win the chance to be one of only eight people attending the private reading. This unique event takes place on 10 October at the Upton Green home of the Harrison family.

This house in Speke was where the early Beatles and Quarrymen rehearsed. A true location of international music heritage. To enter this online quiz answer the following question:

Name the Liverpool businessman who was among the first to spot their talent and even drove them in a van to Germany for their gigs in Hamburg?
