The Slab Boys Trilogy

The Slab Boys Trilogy $29.99

John Byrne

Published by Faber & Faber

6 Male 2 Female

The slab boys are teen age factory workers entrapped by Scotland's rigid social and economic structure

Their narrow dream is to graduate to a desk job or, in rare cases, to break away into the world of art and design

Using humor as his primary instrument, the author skillfully conveys the frustrations of disengaged young people in this comic work

"We laugh at the banter and we care about the burdens of the characters about young hope at an early standstill" ~ N.Y. Times

"The play is human and funny ... Characters bristle with comic animosities or falter in bittersweet absurdities" ~ N.Y. Magazine
