Tickets & Prices

Step into the heart of 1980s Liverpool with Chrissie, Loggo, George, Dixie, and Yosser.

These lads are no strangers to hard work, but with no jobs and no money, they’re on the hunt for that one big break.

They might be down, but they’re certainly not out. Watch as they navigate life’s hurdles, dodge the ‘sniffers,’ and keep their spirits up in the face of adversity.

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of Alan Bleasdale’s iconic TV series, James Graham’s fresh and powerful adaptation is now taking the stage at the Garrick Theatre. Following rave reviews from its runs at Liverpool’s Royal Court and the National Theatre, this gripping production is at London’s Garrick Theatre for a limited 8-week engagement.

Don't miss out on this slice of Liverpool life – it’s a journey filled with grit, resilience, and plenty of heart. Book your tickets now!
