This production of Not a Game for the Boys by Simon Block was performed at The Royal Court Theatre in 1995
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…
