The Greater Game
30 October to 25 November
Waterloo East Theatre
Whilst this play is taking place at the Waterloo East Theatre, the fact that some of its rehearsals have recently taken place at The Breyer Group Stadium is reason enough to mention it once again.
Based on the book They Took The Lead by Stephen Jenkins, The Greater Game tells the true story of the 42 men from Clapton Orient who signed up en masse to fight in the great war. It focuses on the bond of two lifelong friends, Richard MacFadden and William Jonas who met near Newcastle aged 7 before moving to London to play football then enlisting to fight in the Battle Of The Somme with tragic consequences. Tickets range from £19-£22 and you can purchase yours here.
