Boys From The Blackstuff

Author(s): Alan Bleasdale, adapted by James Graham Company: Liverpool’s Royal Court & Stockroom Productions Running time: 2h 30min approx

40 years after Alan Bleasdale’s ground-breaking television series was essential viewing, Stockroom and Liverpool’s Royal Court will present a new adaptation by James Graham, writer of the hit BBC series Sherwood.

This is '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, spend less? They just need a chance.

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

Alan Bleasdale’s Boy’s From The Blackstuff will be directed by Stockroom Artistic Director, Kate Wasserberg.
