Outside Edge
Written by Richard Harris
Directed by Bill Fielder
28 September – 3 October 1981

Roger has enough trouble assembling his cricket team to play against the British Railways Maintenance Division Reading East, but these complications pale before those occurring among their various wives and girlfriends. As a final catastrophe, rain starts to fall. The play, from the author of Stepping Out, was first seen at the Queen’s Theatre, London, starring Julia McKenzie and Maureen Lipman.
