By Richard Harris
Outside Edge is the second of our season of plays devoted to the acclaimed playwright Richard Harris. This play is probably his most famous and has been televised as well as produced on the London stage. All human life is here encapsulated in an afternoon of cricket on the village green. Emotions and conflicts come to the surface between husbands and wives and girlfriends as the match progresses changing everybody's lives.
This amateur production of 'Outside Edge' is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, Ltd.
