Less than a week to go…
Yes folks, it’s only a few days until Not A Game For Boys kicks off in the Emerald Roadhouse, starring Chris Patrick-Simpson alongside James Doran and Stephen Kelly. If you haven’t got your tickets you really need to get in there now as they’re selling fast!
It’s going to be a great play, and with an informal setting in the Emerald (if you’re there early enough you can get yourself both a pint and a comfy seat on a sofa!) a hugely enjoyably experience all round.
It’s 1995… Three taxi men, a gun and a table tennis game.
Eric, Oscar and Tony are taxi drivers. They escape for one evening each week to play table tennis as a team in a local amateur league. Eric would rather die than be relegated to division two. Oscar has just attended a funeral and fears his unmarried, lonely life mirrors that of his deceased colleague. Tony‘s casual affair in the back of his taxi is threatening to destroy not only his relationship, but his friendships… and the future of the team.
Not A Game For Boys is a laugh-out-loud comedy: a tale of competitive obsessions, played out in a small hall on a back street of Belfast. Though the characters play with bats and balls, the main game takes place anywhere but the table…
