I doubt if anyone watching will even know it is about league.

It came to the Derby playhouse a few years ago with Robbie Paul guesting. And despite yours truly helping at rehearsals they still included line outs and pretend rucks and mauls on the night.

Still, it's a good piece on stage, the way six or seven people can play both sides in a game and manage to create an atmosphere is wonderful.

Maybe they tailored it by location.
Definitely rugby league whan I saw it in Wythenshaw.

Even when it played at Woking it was very recognisably Rugby League.

There were lots of Play The Balls and definitely no sodding line-outs.

Forgot to reply to this after I'd been.

Must say, I really enjoyed it. Very nice venue, although it was a shame that there were only around 60-70 people in a 4-500 seat venue, the cast deserved much better than that, but it was one of the most expensive shows at the festival, so wouldn't perhaps pick up the casual festival-goers who just turn up for shows on the day.

Abi Titmus was actually very good I must say, and the RL scenes really were excellent, I really enjoyed how they did it, and didn't expect so many action scenes, and certainly didn't expect them to work as well as they did!

It was pretty moving in parts, but overall it was a charming, witty piece of theatre, and after watching a pretty shocking (yet excellent) version of A Clockwork Orange just a couple of days earlier, this was a very welcome light-hearted 2hrs of entertainment!

If you get chance to see it, I'd recommend you make the effort.
