The Ashes at the Playhouse

"The Ashes is award-winning Nottingham writer Michael Pinchbeck’s fascinating play about cricketing hero Harold Larwood, plucked from a Nottinghamshire coal mine to become the spearhead of England’s now infamous ‘bodyline’ attack.

Bowling fast at the batsman’s body, Larwood tore the Australian team apart in the winter of 1932/3. Amid accusations of ‘unsportsmanlike behaviour’, diplomatic relations between the two countries plummeted.

This is a dramatic tale of conflict between two countries, two classes and two men played out on the pitch and in the pavilion."

Read a review of the play here :


We'll meet in the bar beforehand for a drink. The play itself starts at 7:45pm.

Tickets are just £10 (£8 concessions). I'll arrange to take money beforehand and book a block of seats together.
