24:7 Hit Phys Ed Back in Salford

WhatsOnStage logo

Next week sees the return of a 24:7 Theatre Festival hit - Simon Carter's Phys Ed. The production visits the Studio in Salford and is presented by Lindsey Bowden in Association with Opposite Leg.

Neville Trellis - a rugby obsessed PE teacher. His identical twin - the greatest player on the planet. The time has come for Neville to claim some glory of his own. Two things stand in his way: his childhood bully and fifteen oversized, weirdly hairy twelve year olds. With the rugby world cup taking place over in New Zealand, Phys Ed looks at the competitive world of rugby union from a completely different angle.

Nominated for a 2009 Manchester Evening News Award, and starring Nicholas Osmond (Leon in BBC Radio 4's The Archers), Phys Ed is described as a heart-warming comedy about triumph over adversity and the true nature of sporting heroism.

Phys Ed is directed by David Windle and Guy Michaels and runs at the Studio Salford from 28 September - 1 October.
