Howzat! Comedy comes to the stage

Rugby Theatre’s comedy Outside Edge will be staged from Saturday.

The show was written by Richard Harris in the 1980s and is a popularcomedy about cricket and marital harmony.

The cricket is played to a low standard but in deadly earnest by the local team. The players and a bunch of ageing lotharios, wife-cheaters and drinkers who care little for their captain Roger’s fussy organising. Their behaviour is anything but sporting as they fight among themselves, hold out for the batting positions of their choice and are not averse to running one another out while at the wicket.

Outside Edge runs from until Saturday March 23 at 7:30pm with no show on the Sunday. For tickets call 01788 541234 or can be booked online by visiting
