Council Depot Blues
  • UK Regional & Tours

Dave Kirby (Lost Soul, Brick up the Mersey Tunnels, Reds & Blues, Dreaming of a Barry White Christmas, Brick Up 2 the wrath of Ann Twacky) is back with his smash hit comedy Council Depot Blues!

It's Stan's last day on the job and look what he's leaving behind. Clearing houses after the dearly departed have buggered off beyond the grave leaving nothing behind but busted sofas, faded photos and worthless heirlooms. It's enough to give anyone the blues.

What he will miss are the lads who he works with in the Liverpool City Council Excrement Eradication Department. A bunch of social misfits without two airs and graces to rub together, they might wind each other up but they are a team. Stick together through thick and thin. They'd never desert each other or rip each other off. Not even if one of them found something really valuable&

Packed with gut laughs and set to a stone-cold blues soundtrack Royal Court Liverpool are pleased to welcome back Jake Abraham, Roy Brandon, Paul Broughton, Lindzi Germain, Howard Gray, Phil Hearne and Andrew Schofield in this uproarious comedy.
