A comedy of soccer and sexual politics by the author of â€˜Hobsonâ€™s Choiceâ€™
They take the National Game seriously up in Blackton, and things havenâ€™t been going too well for the Rovers. Their glory days are well behind, theyâ€™re losing brass hand over fist, the Clubâ€™s only decent player wants to marry the Chairmanâ€™s daughter, and the Chairman wants to let him go on transfer to Blacktonâ€™s deadly rivals - though he might just need him to nobble his first match at his new club...
If some of this sounds familiar, donâ€™t be fooled. This is Lancashire, 1914 - and where thereâ€™s muck thereâ€™s money!
By the author of â€˜Hobsonâ€™s Choiceâ€™, â€˜The Gameâ€™ is a fast-moving social comedy of soccer and sexual politics, set during a single Saturday afternoon in the season.
Kick-off at a quarter-to-eight each night!
Directed by Jerry Park, performances will be at 7.45pm on 8th â€“ 16th September, 2017.
Tickets priced at Â£9.00 will be on sale from Nantwich Tourist Office (01270 600727) or on-line at www.nantwichtowncouncil.gov.uk from Tuesday 8th August 2017.
