BILL AND BOB: The Anfield Revolutionaries

The compelling story of how Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley joined forces to transform Liverpool FC and English football comes to The Atkinson stage to mark the 60th anniversary of Shankly’s appointment as manager in December 1959.

With Kop heroes Ian St John, Ian Callaghan, Chris Lawler and Phil Neal live on stage, Bill And Bob:The Anfield Revolutionaries charts Shankly’s arrival at a club trapped in Second Division mediocrity and how he inspired a glorious revival of Liverpool fortunes.

The charismatic Scot, assisted by coach and physio Paisley, guided Liverpool to promotion, three League titles, two FA Cup triumphs – ending the club’s 73-year wait for the trophy in 1965 – a UEFA Cup success and unbroken qualification for European football.

And when Shankly sensationally quit in 1974 Paisley succeeded him and went on to amass a stunning collection of 19 trophies in nine seasons, crowning Liverpool’s 17-year journey from the second tier of English football to become kings of Europe in 1977.

Shankly and Paisley were poles apart in personality but shared an abiding passion and genius for building football teams and the show provides a unique, revealing insight into the two men who set the standards for future Anfield generations.

Written and narrated by broadcaster and author John Keith, biographer of Shankly and Paisley, and with the technical direction of Gill Beattie, it features exclusive audio and video material and songs from international artiste Ian Ross.
