Cricketing comedy classic Outside Edge will be taking to the stage this month at Wickenby courtesy of the Amici Touring Theatre.

The stage is set for the needle cricket match of the season against British Railways Maintenance Division, Yeading East.

The wicket is being prepared, as are Miriam’s legendary teas, while Roger, her husband and team captain, attempts to assemble his best team.

However, all is not well as illness, marital strife, dodgy spinning fingers and a host of other complications conspire to cause the home team problems.

Ostensibly a cricketing play, it is principally about relationships.

The match takes something of a back seat, as couples fall out, tempers get frayed, and Miriam simply has to know what Rodger got up to in Dorking.

Outside Edge, by Richard Harris, runs for one night - this Friday, November 13.

Tickets cost £9 and £8 through the theatre website at, where further details of this and forthcoming productions is also available.

Alternatively, give the box office a call on 01673 885500.

Doors, and the bar, open at 7pm, with the performance starting at 7.30pm.
