Patrick Marber returns to premiere a fifth play at the National Theatre. Directed by Ian Rickson, the cast is Calvin Demba, Daniel Mays and Peter Wight.
Small time semi-pro football, the non-league. A world away from the wealth and the television cameras. A young player touched with brilliance arrives from nowhere. An ambitious manager determines to make him his own. And the old soul of the club still has dreams of glory.
A new play about the dying romance of the great English game – and the tender, savage love that powers it.
