Outside Edge

Outside Edge

Dates: 18 – 28 May 2011

Directed by Andrew Tait

Plot Summary: Outside Edge is a comedy about a cricket team trying to win a game of cricket whilst sorting out their various marital problems. Set in a cricket Pavilion, Outside Edge deals with an eventful Saturday afternoon in the lives of five men and four women. Roger struggles to keep together his team to play against the British Railways Maintenance Division Yeading East, while the wives and girlfriends of his players help and hinder to devastating and hilarious effects.

A Message From The Director: This was my first outing as director. It has been a huge challenge, especially as the bloke playing Roger never listens to a word I say! I couldn’t have done it without the full and gracious support of everyone in the cast and crew, so I owe a huge ‘thank you’ to them all. The cast are a mixture of some very old hands and some complete novices to the stage. They have put a massive amount of work into this production, as is always required when putting on a quality show. As the old timers say, “Cricket’s a funny game” and I’m sure you will agree that the people who play it are even funnier.

Venue: The Studio, Ward Street, Upper Hutt.
