Discover Leicester Square

What's OnBoys From The Blackstuff

‘Gizza job. Go on, gizzit.’

Welcome to 1980s Liverpool, where Chrissie, Loggo, George, Dixie, and Yosser are no strangers to hard work and the struggle to support their families.

But with no jobs and no money, what can they do? Work harder? Work longer? Buy cheaper? Spend less? They just need one opportunity.

Life may be tough, but these lads know how to navigate the system. They'll find jobs, dodge the ‘sniffers,’ and try to keep their spirits high along the way.

Marking forty years since Alan Bleasdale’s iconic television series, James Graham’s powerful new adaptation is now at the Garrick Theatre in London’s West End. Fresh from its successful run at Liverpool’s Royal Court and the National Theatre, this gripping production is here for a limited 8-week engagement. Book now to catch this incredible adaption.
