Rapture Theatre in association with The Palace Theatre in Kilmarnock
The Red Lion FC is an English non-league side who have dreams of the big time. However, the club’s manager, Kidd, will stop at nothing to realise his own ambitions of achieving money and fame. So, when a talented young player, Jordan, joins the club and ‘plays like a God’, Kidd sees his golden opportunity. However, kit-man, Yates – club legend and footballing ‘hero’- has other ideas. A ‘Clash of the Titans’ ensues between Yates and Kidd over the future of Jordan and the football club.
Patrick Marber’s hit play unfolds like a Greek Tragedy, transcending ‘the beautiful game’, in a tale of heroism, hubris and handballs!
The Red Lion offers a funny, profound and unmissable night at the theatre. Starring Emmerdale and Brookside star John McArdle, Brendan Charleson and Harry McMullen.
Suitable for ages 14+
