Steven G. Farrell contacted me a few days ago and told me about his latest script, it's Mersey Boys, a motion picture about the Beatles. Here details of our conversation:

The producer and director is M. Stefan Strozier.  Mr. Strozier is also playing the male lead of Al Moran, an Irish-American art professor who encounters John Lennon and his mates Paul McCartney and George Harrison in a smoky fish n chips shop.
