Brookside creative forces reunited.

PHIL REDMOND has teamed up with writer Jimmy McGovern for the first time since they worked on Brookside for a string of plays tackling social issues such as gun crime.

The dramas will be rehearsed, produced and staged in community centres across Liverpool, and in Altcourse Prison.

The first production, Da Boyz, written by another ex-Brookside writer Carol Cullington, focuses on the wall of silence that surrounds gun crime after a boy is shot dead by rival gang members.
