THE SLAB BOYS
Presented by The Compass
Byrne’s iconic comedy The Slab Boys. Set in 1957 it depicts the events of a single day in the ‘slab room’ of Stobo’s carpet factory in Paisley. It is here the slab boys mix the colours for the design department on marble slabs… as well as spending significant amounts of time lusting after Lucille (“every slab boy’s dream”), having sly fags, picking on uncool Hector and stealing from Sadie’s tea trolley!
Join in the hilarious and frantic adventures of Phil, an artist of great natural talent, son of demented Mrs McCann and his friend George ‘Spanky’ Farrell as they spend time grinding paints in the slab room while they dream of dressing up and having somewhere better to go.
‘A sparkling and virile play. Full of laughter, humanity and even hope, in the form of the surreptitiously talented slab boy who dreams of a world where the barleycorn is green’ – Sunday Times
