Details

Some stories live on in the soil, long after the game has finished…

The Ashes is award-winning Nottingham writer Michael Pinchbeck’s enthralling new play about cricketing hero Harold Larwood, plucked from a Nottinghamshire coalmine to become the spearhead of England’s now infamous ‘bodyline’ attack. Bowling fast at the batsman’s body, Larwood tore the Australian team apart in the winter of 1932/3.

Amid accusations of ‘unsportsmanlike behaviour’, diplomatic relations between the two countries plummeted.

This is a dramatic tale of conflict between two countries, two classes and two men played out on the pitch and in the pavilion.

A must-see

Nottingham Post

Almost 80 years after its subject threatened friendly relations between England and Australia, the play is well worth the wait

Karl Haynes is excellent as Larwood

British Theatre Guide

Karl Haynes perfectly captures the proud & principled essence of a working-class hero

Mansfield and Ashfield Chad

Jamie De Courcey is completely convincing as Douglas Jardine
