Mates co-founder Terri Paddock will talk to the stars of Patrick Marber’s THE RED LION, “a Premiere League play about non-league football” (Gary Lineker), now receiving its West End debut, on Thursday 9 November 2017. Got any questions?

Three generations explore contrasting ideas about loyalty, ambition and what it takes to win in this powerful locker room drama from multi award-winning writer Patrick Marber. A promising young football player arrives at a struggling non-league club and pits the veteran kit man against the ambitious manager who’ll do anything to keep the club and himself afloat.

Following a sell-out run at Live Theatre in Newcastle, this new version of THE RED LION, directed by Max Roberts, transfers to the West End’s Trafalgar Studios 2 from 1 November to 2 December 2017. It stars Stephen Tompkinson (DCI Banks, Drop the Dead Donkey), John Bowler (DCI Banks, The Bill) and Dean Bone (Vera).

“Football does not feel like a metaphor for life in director Max Roberts’ intense and heartfelt production …. It’s a passionate staging with an accomplished cast” – The Stage ★★★★

In a play that resonates in contemporary British society, THE RED LION goes far beyond the pitch to look at hope, obsessions and the desperation of humanity to be a part of something.

An earlier version of THE RED LION had its world premiere at the National Theatre in 2015. Patrick Marber has won Evening Standard, Olivier, Time Out, New York and London Critics’ Circle and Writers’ Guild Awards for his plays, which include Closer, Dealer’s Choice, After Miss Julie and Don Juan in Soho, revived in the West End earlier this year with David Tennant.

For THE RED LION post-show Q&A on Thursday 9 November 2017, I’ll be joined by the show’s three stars to discuss the play and the issues it raises.
