Boys from the Blackstuff – best seats for just £59.50, a saving of up to £30

Gizza job. Go on, gizzit

80s Liverpool.

Chrissie, Loggo, George, Dixie and Yosser are used to hard work and providing for their families. But there is no work and there is no money. What are they supposed to do? Work harder, work longer, buy cheaper, spendless? They just need a chance. 

Life is tough but the lads can play the game. Find jobs, avoid the ‘sniffers' and see if you can have a laugh along the way.  


**** ‘Funny, punchy, humane. It comes roaring across the footlights. A wonderful, moving play crackling with humour’ Financial Times


Forty years after Alan Bleasdale’s ground-breaking television series and following its ★★★★★ (Daily Mail) run at Liverpool’s Royal Court, James Graham’s powerful new adaptation is now playing at the Garrick Theatre direct from the National Theatre for 8 weeks only until 3 August.
