access_time 9 years ago

A DRAMATIC reading of the new play The Greater Game, based on Stephen Jenkins’ book They Took The Lead, which told the story of Orient’s World War One effort, will take place at Brisbane Road on Sunday November 11 at 6pm.

Directed by Tilly Vosburgh and written by Michael Horspool, The Greater Game recounts the true story of the footballers of Clapton (Leyton) Orient who fought a deadly but honourable battle.

The Greater Game is the touching tale of footballing greats who became British heroes and now is your chance to enjoy this amazing true story of courage and friendship. Performed by a talented cast including Danny Young, be prepared to laugh and cry and you hear this tale for the first time in a world premiere at the O’s home ground. No costumes, no backdrops just talented actors telling this tale and bringing these heroes to life.


In connection with The Mr Brightside Project (Know The Score) and The O’s Somme Memorial trust, this Remembrance Sunday, Leyton Orient and Act-On productions are proud to present a rehearsed reading and world premier of The Greater Game.


Two great charities, one amazing tale, come and support the history of this proud club.
