Beverley Callard chats about new stage play The Thunder Girls

There's a wonderful interview with Beverley Callard, who plays Liz McDonald in Coronation Street, over at the Manchester Evening News website.

Beverley will be taking time out from Corrie later this year to star in a new stage play called The Thunder Girls. You can read more on that here.

“I love Corrie,” Beverley tells the M.E.N. “I have been on it 30 years this year, and the reason why is because it is a very matriarchal show. Well this is a matriarchal play. What’s great about this script is it isn’t 15 men and three women. We need more of this.

“More often than not you will watch a film and a 50-year-old male lead will have a 30-year-old wife. If it’s the other way around she is called a cougar and he’s her toy boy.

“This play is about real women. They have been hurt, they have been happy, they have been loved, they’ve had their heart broken.

“This is the night they get together having not seen each other for 30 years, and the audience is a part of it.”

“Often I think the best is yet to come for me,” she added. “I’m offered so much work and I love my job. I can’t ever imagine retiring as an actor. I’m just going to keep on going.”

The Thunder Girls has its premiere preview run at the Lowry Theatre, Salford Quays, from September 24 – 28.
