BEBINGTON Dramatic Society’s production of Richard Harris' cricketing comedy Outside Edge will be staged at the Gladstone Theatre in Port Sunlight next week.

In the play, Roger’s seemingly perfect marriage to Miriam hits the skids when she discovers he was playing away from home in more ways than one on a trip to Dorking, Kevin is trying to fight off his over affectionate wife Maggie while nursing his injured spinning finger and Alex's new girlfriend ends up shutting herself in the toilets having hysterics.

The last thing anyone wants on this balmy summer afternoon, besides an un-greased roller, is a spot of rain ...

The play, from the author of A Touch of Frost, won the 1994 'Best Situation Comedy' Award for the TV adaptation which starred Brenda Blethyn, and Timothy Spall.

Bebington Dramatic Society's production will be staged from Tuesday to Saturday, June 11 to 15.

Tickets from 0151 643 8757.

The next play of its new season will be Martin McDonagh's successful West End play Hangmen, which will be the Wirral premiere and runs from November 20-23.
