Suitable for 11+ Running time: 105mins approx. including interval By J.L. Carr - Adapted and directed by Paul Hodson Is it possible? Could a humble village team really have taken on football’s finest and triumphed? When an enigmatic trainer with revolutionary theories, two of the best players ever to have disappeared without trace from football’s top flight, and a chairman of Napoleonic ability all find themselves in the same place at the same time, it just might be! Booker-nominated J L Carr’s joyous tale of the unstoppable rise of the ultimate underdog is now brought to life in a hilarious new show from Fringe First winner Paul Hodson (Fever Pitch, Meeting Joe Strummer) and the team behind Farm Boy (Official Fringe Sell out 2010) and Dolly (The Times’ Top Five Shows 2010) "Adapted as a richly populated one-man show by Paul Hodson, and played with unerring precision and unquenchable enthusiasm by Mark Jardine" **** What’s on Stage "This delightful adaptation... is one of this year’s (Edinburgh Festival) Fringe highlights " ***** British theatre guide
