Devonshire Park Theatre

Tuesday 3 - Saturday 7 July 2012

Buy Ticket

A wonderful comedy from Intimate Exchanges, an inter-related series of eight plays by Britain's most popular playwright, Alan Ayckbourn. Starring Stephen Beckett and Jenny Funnell.

In this funny, touching, sometimes hilarious and sometimes poignant comedy, A Cricket Match has an Englishman's passion for cricket as its backdrop.

Celia, the Headmaster's wife, fears her marriage to Toby may be over. Toby's best friend, Miles, a similarly troubled man, who never really knows exactly how to say what he means, is married to the flamboyant Rowena who is given to practical jokes and indiscreet affairs. Everything comes to a head at a cricket match, where Lionel, the incompetent groundsman, has sabotaged the pitch and Miles and Toby come to dramatic blows over a dubious umpiring decision.

A Cricket Match takes the audience on an hilarious journey through the difficulties and complications of marital discontent.
