DON'T MISS DOUGIE BLAXLAND'S NEW PLAY - THE LONG WALK BACK

If, like many Middlesex followers, you were lucky enough to get to see When The Eye Has Gone - Dougie Blaxland's brilliant play about the life and career of cricketing great Colin Milburn, then you're in for a real treat!

Following the success of his last play, which was performed at Lord's late in 2016 and on tour in early 2017, Blaxland is back with another cricketing masterpiece.

Dougie's latest play focusses on the fascinating life of Chris Lewis and will be hitting London in April 2019 for four dates at the Greenwich Theatre.

England Cricketer Chris Lewis enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame and fortune in the 1990's.

Playing 85 Tests and ODI's for England, he was on the verge of greatness, when named England's International cricketer of the year in 1994.

Within months of his cricketing career ending, however, his life lay in ruins when he was sentenced to 13 years in prison for smuggling cocaine into the UK.

Beginning with his arrest at Gatwick Airport in 2008 The Long Walk Back charts the extraordinary journey that took Lewis from the brink of despair to a profound moral awakening.

Based on real life events The Long Walk Back tells the epic story of an international sporting star's catastrophic fall from grace.

Shows include a post-play Q&A session with Chris Lewis himself and Roughhouse Theatre Director, Shane Morgan.

Greenwich Theatre London dates as follows...

Wednesday 24th April 2019

Thursday 25th April 2019

Friday 26th April 2019

Saturday 27th April 2019
