Chosen by our audiences as one of the
most popular Lamproom Theatre Company productions of the last twenty years.
This classic award-winning comedy follows amateur Rugby League minnows The Wheatsheaf Arms in their quest to beat arch rivals, The Cobblers Arms, from Castleford. The Cobblers Arms have been the best and most feared amateur Rugby League team for the past ten years.
Ex-pro Arthur bets their boss that he can train a bunch of deadbeats to defeat them in a local rugby sevens tournament. He has just eight weeks to persuade, cajole and bully the reluctant, drunken layabouts of The Wheatsheaf into a team capable of beating The Cobblers Arms, something which hasn’t been done for ten years.
Will he be able to do it??
Comedy of the Year 1984, ‘Up ‘n’ Under’ is
