John Byrne returns to the Traverse this month, from Tuesday 29 April to Saturday 24 May (previews Friday 25 – Sunday 27), with the next instalment in the Slab Boys story, Nova Scotia.
The original Slab Boys trilogy – The Slab Boys, Cuttin’ a Rug and Still Life – started life at the Traverse in 1978 with Slab Boys itself, the story of a group of young Scots lads between the years of 1957 – 1972.
Nova Scotia brings the characters into the 21st Century, facing the New Millennium with fortitude and good humour, but things won’t remain good humoured for long…
The premiere of a new John Byrne play is a big event in Scottish theatre, and it’ll be interesting to see how this new addition to the legend of the Slab Boys is received.
Visit the Traverse website for full details and prices of the play.
