The first being the right to an education; and the second the right to go out to work. Helen is played by Maria Lovelady and is perfectly cast.
She brought empathy out in the audience with all the challenges life throws at her, her ups not many and downs, her friendships and battles with her family. The father, a spineless but moral man, played by Mark Moragham also carried the role off faultlessly.
To be honest, I could go through every member of the cast in this way as they did a brilliant job — there was humour, sympathy, frustration and tears. I found there were various topics in the storyline that make you think about how you would have coped in the same situation and reminds you of how different our lives are now.
I can whole-heartedly recommend it. As always with the Empire, the stage was beautifully dressed with very clever scene changes.

She is convinced she is going to end up a spinster but then she meets someone and falls in love. Helen saw Twopence as a musical play and enjoyed it so much she was moved to tears. She went on to endorse five further runs of this adaptation.
Sadly, Helen passed away in aged My most recent stage play adaptation of Twopence was endorsed by her son, Robert Bhatia, who came to see the show with his family in He loved it. As a result, Robert is fully supportive of my adaptation of By The Waters Of Liverpool and I am looking forward to welcoming him and his family to the premiere in October.
