Not a Game for Boys



Simon Block


Nick Hern Books

“Compassionate, observant, and, as a bonus, shot through with humour” —Sunday Express

“Block's finest achievement is to show how ridiculous these men are without belittling them or destroying your sympathy for them” —Financial Times

A razor-sharp comedy about three cabbies competing in a local table tennis league.

Once a week, three cabbies seek respite from their lives in a local table tennis league, and tonight they must win—or face the unthinkable oblivion of relegation.

Deeper rivalries and competitive obsessions emerge as the team try to survive the pressure, but the real game takes place anywhere but at the table.

Not a Game for Boys was originally performed at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 1995. It was revived at the King’s Head Theatre, London, in 2015.
