The Red Lion
Rapture Theatre In Association with The Palace Theatre in Kilmarnock Presents
The Red Lion by Patrick Marber
Critically Acclaimed, Award-Winning Football Comedy is Coming to Kirkcaldy!
The Red Lion FC is a non-league side who have dreams of the big time. However, their manager, Kidd, will stop at nothing to realise his own ambitions of money and fame. So when a talented young player, Jordan, turns up for a trial, Kidd sees his golden opportunity. But Yates, the kit-man and club legend, has other ideas. A battle of wills ensues between Yates and Kidd over the future of Jordan and the future of the football club.
Following The Red Lion’s sell-out run in London’s West End, Rapture Theatre is delighted to present a brand new production of Patrick Marber’s hit comedy about “the beautiful game”. Emmerdale and Brookside actor John McArdle will lead an all-star cast in what promises to be a funny, touching and unmissable night at the theatre.
The funny, moving 90 minute play about ‘the beautiful game’ will be followed by a post-show panel discussion with the cast and Raith Rovers' former player, Jock McStay, who won a First Division title for the Rovers in 1993, and Hall of Fame co-host, John Greer.
