‘Bysmal Boys

A new play written by Laura Genders | directed by Holden Oak

It’s 1977 and for the first time in Fire Brigade history, a national strike threatens to bring the country to a stand still.

In a quiet corner of Cheshire, the lads of Blue Watch, Macclesfield are waiting with bated breath to see what this means for them. Will their hopes blaze to union glory or smoulder to ashes and what will this mean for the Brigade, their loved ones and the lads themselves?

Set against the true life backdrop of the strike action as autumn gives way to the Winter of Discontent. Genders’ new play explores this rarely examined period of history and the impact that is still felt today.

Conflictive, comic yet utterly compassionate, the boys of Blue Watch navigate their individual stories and that of their brotherhood. It may just be 30%, but is that all they really stand to lose?
