C21 Theatre Company presents Not A Game For Boys By Simon Block Friday 18th March 2011 8pm

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...

C21 previously entertained Playhouse audiences on their sell out tour of Sylvia Plath's Three Women which also played to critical acclaim in the 2010 Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival. They are proud to present Simon Block's remarkable work, which was originally staged at the Royal Court in London.

This play contains strong language and is recommended for age 16+.
