Bowling them over with Outside Edge

Hailsham Theatres with their summer play Outside Edge by Richard Harris

Howzat? A few chaps in the cricket team are caught out in more ways than the sporting one in Richard Harris’s hilarious comedy Outside Edge.

The tension and drama unfolds off field as well as on in this classic play full of slips and silly mid-offs soon to be presented by Hailsham Theatres at Summerheath Hall.

When the wives and girlfriends get together in the pavilion one fine summer’s day, the audience soon discovers that most of the guys have dropped a googly of some sort in relationships away from the pitch.

Watch sparks begin to fly as the chaps foolishly try to solve their various marital problems at the same time as winning the game.

Richard Harris is a prolific British television writer who has been part of The Avengers, The Sweeney, Armchair Mystery Theatre, and Target. He has helped to create several standout series including Adam Adamant and Shoestring. Despite a career largely spent writing for the crime and detective genre, in 1994 he won the prize for best situation comedy from the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain for Outside Edge, which he had originated as a stage play.

Performances will be from Thursday June 9 – Saturday June 11 at 7.30pm with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.

Doors open 7pm / 2pm, licensed bar, refreshments and cake available. To book tickets contact Hailsham Pavilion on 01323 841414 or go to To find out more visit or find the group on social networks.
