John Byrne’s beloved The Slab Boys is one of the great, joyous landmarks of Scottish theatre. Twenty years on since Byrne directed the exuberant cinema adaptation, GFF is celebrating with a special screening that will be attended by John Byrne and members of the cast and crew. Paisley 1957 is the setting, and three working-class lads from the local carpet factory are looking forward to a staff dance and the rock’n’roll fuelled promise of sweet escape from the daily drudgery of their lives. An amazing cast of weel-kent faces includes Barbara Rafferty, David O’Hara and Ford Kiernan
