JOHN Godber’s award-winning rugby comedy Up ‘n’ Under, comes to the Oxford Playhouse later this month.
Brought in partnership with England Deaf Rugby Union, this production has been given Fingersmiths’ spin.
Featuring a cast of deaf and hearing actors using British Sign Language and spoken English, this unique production promises an exciting visual and physical theatre to delight all audiences.
The Wheatsheaf Arms rugby team, the laughing stock of Castleford’s Amateur Rugby League Seven-a-Side tournament, have never won a game, don’t have seven players and spend more time in the pub than on the pitch.
With just five weeks to go, our hero coach Arthur has to convince them they can beat the mighty Cobbler’s Arms, but first he has to work out how to communicate with them.
Headed by Tony Stoyles, Chairman of England Deaf Rugby Union and World Deaf Rugby, this first-time collaboration promotes the awareness of, and aims to develop deaf participation in, sport and arts across the country.
Tickets for Up ‘n ‘Under at Oxford Playhouse start at £10 and are available from the Ticket Office on 01865 305305 or view oxfordplayhouse.com
