The play centres on a footballer, a prince and a Prime Minister and, glancing at the production photos, we couldn't help but notice that some of the cast bear a striking resemblance to the real thing.
Can you spot the difference? <P> <P> <P> The play explores the night before England's big to host the 2018 FIFA World Cup, in a Swiss hotel, giving a behind-the-scene glimpse of missed planes, mistaken identities and sartorial challenges as diplomacy in action is brought to the stage. <P> <P> <P> Despite the many misunderstandings, Beckham, Cameron and Prince William are all desperate to bring the nation's favourite sport home. <P> <P> We (probably fortunately) failed to find any photos of the real Cameron looking like this, but these two of Dugald Bruce-Lockhart definitely made us laugh... <P> <P> <P> The Three Lions runs at the Pleasance Beyond until 26 August 2013. <p>- Louise Miles </p>
