Now here is a thing, many people come to my blog as I wrote about John Rae's The Custard Boys. It is one of my favourite pieces of fiction and for some reason, this blog is google's number one search result on the subject.
Although it has been filmed twice, I have never seen it as a wildly popular story but Glenn Chandler, creator of Taggart, has decided to put the story on the stage in London (The Tabard Theatre - Turnham Green) from 10 April to 12 May. I am intrigued. Details here Tabard theatre.
