Photo Flash: Images From Boys From The Blackstuff Gala Night

Boys From The Blackstuff is playing at the Garrick Theatre in London’s West End for a limited 8 week season, following runs at Liverpool’s Royal Court and the National Theatre’s Olivier Theatre. Performances began on the 13th June, and celebrated their gala night last night, images were taken by Piers Allardyce.

Joining the cast at the Garrick Theatre and at the after-party @sohoplace were, amongst others, , Kacey Ainsworth, Jimmy Nail, Rob Rinder, Jenny Seagrove, Abbie Budden, Michael Joseph Hardwick, Precious Muir, Cassie Samji and Sam Williams.  The cast is led by Aron Julius (Loggo), Nathan McMullen (Chrissie), Barry Sloane (Yosser), Philip Whitchurch (George) and Mark Womack (Dixie).

James Graham’s powerful new adaptation of Alan Bleasdale’s seminal TV drama, Boys from the Blackstuff, is directed by Kate Wasserberg and the Liverpool’s Royal Court and National Theatre production is presented in the West End by Bill Kenwright Limited.

1980s 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.
