Alan Bleasdale’s Boys From the Blackstuff by James Graham. Gizza job. Go on, gizzit, go ‘head, giz it if you’ve got it, giz it, I can do it. Giz it then. Go ‘head, gizza job.

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.

40 years after Alan Bleasdale’s ground-breaking television series was essential viewing, Liverpool’s Royal Court is delighted to present an unmissable, powerful new adaptation by James Graham, writer of the hit BBC series Sherwood.

Having completely sold out the 2023 run, this is sure to be the hottest ticket of 2024. The show will transfer to the National Theatre in London after its run here.

Event Date: Friday 19th April 2024 - Saturday 11th May 2024
