The Red Lion

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.

Cast includes Daniel Mays, Calvin Demba, and Peter Wight.

Directed by Ian Rickson
