'We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year.' Pink Floyd
'James was such a nice man, a quiet man. Would do anything for anyone. A bit of a worrier though. Always worried what other people thought. The other one? He was far from a quiet. Only looked out for No1 and never gave a damn what anyone else thought. I didn’t care for that one at all. I am shocked by what happened, but not surprised.' A Neighbour
Floorboards tells the story of James, a kind soul who offered a spare room to Nellist, an old school friend for a few days. That was two years ago and Nellist is still there, bringing his chaotic and sometime dangerous life to James door. Near to breaking point, James dreams of his quiet life back but Nellist, one of life’s leeches, has tapped into James' vein and has no intention of letting go 'til there’s nothing left.
Floorboards is a dark comedy from Steve Byron, writer of Walter and co-writer of Bacon Knees and Sausage Fingers, which explores those who walk over others and those who are walked over; those that have a big voice and little to say, and those who have so much to say but little or no voice to say it with; those that push buttons and those whose buttons are pushed.
