97+ is a new theatrical drama based on the 1989 Hillsborough Disaster where severe injuries led to 97 lives lost. Written and directed by Tom Cain, the new full length version of 97+ comes to the Liverpool Olympia for one-night only following its huge success and critical acclaim at Liverpool Theatre Festival and Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Set in 2012, Hillsborough survivors John and Steve each deal with the trauma they suffered as young boys, now as middle-aged men. John bottles up his emotions and only exposes them to his wife, Liz, as he regularly suffers from night terrors but avoids seeking treatment from the doctors. As opposed to Steve, who lives alone but seeks help from the hospital or the vodka bottle as his only support mechanisms. Despite countless setbacks, the Hillsborough survivors continue their fight for justice.’
