Outside Edge

by Richard Harris

10th to 17th October 2015

Ah, the Summer Game. The sound of leather on willow, the gentle applause rippling around the village green, the scorer acknowledging the latest four with a wave of the hand, tea, cakes – the perfect English Sunday afternoon.

But behind this gentile façade lies the politics, family problems, repression, infidelity… and on this particular day, it all comes to a head.

 

Roger is having trouble getting a team together for the afternoon's fixture against the British Railways Maintenance Division Yeading East but this proves to be the least of anyone's worries. Bob is having marriage trouble as he is still doing odd jobs for his ex-wife behind his current wife Ginnie's back. Dennis is also having marital trouble as his wife seems intent on moving house despite the fact they only moved recently. When he finally puts his foot down she sets fire to his new car. Kevin is trying to fight off his over affectionate wife Maggie while at the same time nurse his injured spinning finger and Alex's new girlfriend ends up shutting herself in the toilets having hysterics. Even Roger's seemingly perfect marriage to Miriam hits the skids when she discovers he was playing away from home in more ways than one on a trip to Dorking last year. Can Roger’s day get any worse…?
