Is it possible? Could a humble village team really have taken on football’s finest and triumphed?
When an enigmatic trainer with revolutionary theories, two of the best players ever to have disappeared from football's top flight, and a chairman of Napoleonic ability all find themselves in the same place at the same time, it just might be!
This joyous tale of the unstoppable rise of the ultimate underdog is rivetingly retold in a funny and touching new one-man show - prepare to laugh, prepare to cry, and above all prepare to believe every word! Adapted from the book written by Northamptonshire’s very own J L Carr and nominated for the Booker prize.
