‘Gizza job. Go on, gizzit.’

80s Liverpool. Life is tough as Chrissie, Loggo, George, Dixie and Yosser play the game. But there is no work and no money. What are they supposed to do?

Find jobs, avoid the ‘sniffers’, work harder, work longer, buy cheaper, spend less? All whilst having a laugh along the way.

Following its ★★★★★ (Daily Mail) run at Liverpool’s Royal Court and its London premiere at the National Theatre, James Graham’s (Dear England) powerful new adaptation transfers to the West End, 40 years after Alan Bleasdale’s ground-breaking television series. Directed by Kate Wasserberg (Artistic Director, Theatr Clwyd).

A Stockroom commission


This production is supported by Marcia B Whitaker and The Hintze Family Charitable Foundation.



Three men stand on stage. Two of them are wearing black blazers and one is wearing a white shirt.
