THE Zyber Theatre Company returns to the Siamsa Tíre stage next week to stage a hugely popular play which explores the lives of men who worked on the building sites of London in the 1970s.

Productions of Jimmy Murphy’s ‘The Kings of the Kilburn High Road’ have been staged in theatres all over Ireland, the UK and in the US and it was also made into a movie of the same name back in 2006 starring Colm Meaney.

The action of the play takes place in the back room of a pub in London  on an afternoon when five friends meet to drink to the memory of their friend Jackie Flavin.
