The Red Lion Synopsis

'A beautiful play about the beautiful game.' Independent 'At its heart a dark, tender and beautifully wrought study in male desperation.' Time Out 'Patrick Marber is to modern British drama what Michael Owen was to our footie.' Daily Mail 'Marber, in this riveting new piece, uses the world of non-league, semi-pro football to explore issues of trust and loyalty and the larger division between individual ambition and the collective ethic. If big issues emerge naturally from the action, it is because Marber is writing about a world he knows intimately. Everything feels right.' Guardian 'A triumph. It's Marber's night. At 50, he has found his voice again, and it roars.' Daily Telegraph 'After nine years out of the game, Marber is back in the Champions League.' Mail on Sunday
