After Some Rave Reviews The Red Lion Hits The Road

After Some Rave Reviews The Red Lion Hits The Road

Following a good luck message from Gary Lineker OBE, the cast and crew had a fantastic opening night of The Red Lion at The Capitol, Horsham last Friday.

Written by Patrick Marber, directed by Sean Turner and starring Michael Armstrong, Andrew Fettes and local Actor and Film Director Freddie Hill, it’s a haunting and humorous play about the dying romance of the great English game and the tender, savage love that powers it.

The story follows 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.

The Red Lion is a hugely entertaining play with great humour and has wide appeal to local football players, teams and supporters alike and goes ON TOUR from Friday 23rd August through to Saturday 28th September across the Horsham District as one of the major projects of Horsham District Year of Culture.

It’s one play not to be missed!
