The Slab Boys by John Byrne at Bridewell Theatre
Tower Theatre presents The Slab Boys, by John Byrne, directed by Colette Dockery, at the Bridewell Theatre, in city of London, from 3 to 7 April 2012.
Set in the 'Slab Room' of a carpet manufacturer in Paisley. Its dark-to-slapstick comedy masks undertones of real-life pathos. All the action takes place in the morning and afternoon of a Friday in the winter of 1957. The slab room is a small, paint-spattered dungeon where the apprentice designers, Phil, Spanky and Hector, mix and grind colours for the design department. The big event is the annual staff dance and the boy's pursuit of Lucille .
