Later this month, Huntingdon Drama Club is back with its brand new production of Outside Edge – a beloved comedy all about cricket.

The premise is simple: a team of players are trying to win a cricket match.

But throw in a host of marital problems during the game and things start getting tricky – and funny.

Bob is still doing odd jobs for his ex-wife behind his current wife Ginnie’s back, while Kevin is trying to fight off his over affectionate wife Maggie with an injured spinning finger.

Alex’s girlfriend ends up shutting herself in the toilets having hysterics, and Dennis is having trouble after his wife, who wants to move house, sets fire to his new car.

Even Roger’s seemingly perfect marriage goes awry when Miriam discovers he’s been playing away from home in more ways than one after a trip to Dorking last year.

Then, just to make things even worse for the team, it starts to rain.

The story was adapted for television in 1982 before becoming a sitcom starring the likes of Timothy Spall and Josie Lawrence.

The last production from the drama club for this year, the play will be performed at the Commemoration Hall in Huntingdon from November 24 to 26.

Tickets are £10, £8 for concessions, with an opening night group discount of £5 for groups of 10 or more.
