‘Attwell's text is witty and impressive.’ Time Out
‘Smart satire... riveting.’ The Guardian
‘Genuinely funny, refreshingly unusual and accomplished. ’ WhatsOnStage

In this game of integrity and power, past and present collide. Kate Attwell’s funny and provocative play explores and explodes the mythology of fair play.

We’re not going down without a fight

Lord’s, present day. It’s the Women’s Cricket World Cup: England versus India. There’s a rain delay. Stuck in the same locker room together, tensions mount, ambitions are laid bare and a whole new tactical game begins. Calcutta in the eighteenth century. Two British administrators in colonial India encounter challenges on the field of play that threaten the entire regime.
