A New Wolsey Theatre production
A new production of the West-End hit
It’s the small-time. The semi-pro. The non-league. In a world far removed from the wealth and media of football, this club is struggling to make ends meet. So, when a gifted young player arrives out of nowhere, it’s the opportunity everyone’s been waiting for. For the kit man this brilliant player will restore the declining fortunes of the club. But the ambitious manager is determined to make him his own.
Exploring issues of trust, loyalty and conflict across three generations, this is a new production of the touching, funny and powerful locker-room drama from multi-award-winning writer Patrick Marber.
In a play that resonates in contemporary British society, The Red Lion goes beyond the pitch to look at hope, obsessions and the desperation of humanity to be a part of something.
