George Garrett – A Stoker With Punch

George Garrett, Merchant Seaman, writer, playwright and founder member of Liverpool’s Unity Theatre, was a radical activist who travelled the world and wrote a series of short stories, plays and pieces of reportage about hunger and unemployment in the 1930’s. He was a syndicalist, who joined the Wobblies when he lived in New York for three years, and was influenced by the Irish American Playwright, Eugene O’Neill. He is one of Liverpool’s forgotten writers, even though he is regarded as one of the finest working class writers of his generation. Writing on the Wall, with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, launched The George Garrett Archive Project to preserve and celebrate his legacy
