Outside Edge is set in a cricket pavilion in the 1980s.

The comedy became popular on the small screen in the 1990s and starred actors Timothy Spall, Brenda Blethyn and Josie Lawrence.

In the play, Roger has enough trouble assembling his cricket team, but the complications he endures are nothing compared with those occurring among the team's various wives and girlfriends.

Bob has trouble with his wife and ex-wife, while Alex's girlfriend gets locked in the loo and has hysterics.
