God’s Official

Reform Theatre Company present the comedy God’s Official in the Rose Theatre. Local lads abduct annoying footy referee and soon realise they may have scored a home goal!

Tickets: £10 / £8 concessions / £5 Edge Hill students

“That goal not a
goal”. Cliff and Degsy are devastated that a dodgy refereeing
decision has condemned their beloved
team to relegation. Seeking retribution and
fair play, our local lads abduct the referee. The ransom? Admitting his mistake and playing the game
again. As their half-baked plan goes
increasingly awry, they soon realise that the referee they’ve decided to kidnap
is even more annoying off the pitch than he is on it.

Full time beckons – will the
clueless duo get the victory they’d hoped for, or have they scored a
spectacular own goal?

Love, passion and friendship get
the red card in this very funny look at what could have been – on and off the
pitch – for all life’s dreamers.

“You know a true comic playwright has arrived when the
audience start laughing before the actors tell the jokes”
– The Guardian

Contains strong language

Performed in association with Harrogate Theatre
