The Red Lion 

Daniel Mays in his National Theatre debut!

The Red Lion

Passion. Loyalty. Salvation. 

Small-time semi-pro football, the non-league. A world away from the wealth and the television cameras. A young player touched with brilliance arrives from nowhere. An ambitious manager determines to make him his own. And the old soul of the club still has dreams of glory.

A haunting and humorous new play about the dying romance of the great English game – and the tender, savage love that powers it.

Patrick Marber returns to premiere a fifth play at the National Theatre, where his previous work includes Dealer’s Choice and Closer.

The Red Lion is now booking for performances beginning 3 June.
