In this screenplay based on the lives of the Beatles, the famous British 60’s pop group, a young American College Professor, Al Moran moves to Liverpool to lecture at the local art college.  There he encounters the student John Lennon and the two soon become friends.  As John’s music and his band become more popular,  Al becomes a firm supporter of the band and lends his influence to their music.  Mersey Boys follows the story of how the Beatles grew from a small band playing in the local nightclubs to a worldwide sensation. The script is a nice mix of fact and fiction that brings the characters to life.  Mersey Boys is based on a book by the same name published under Celtic Badger.
