Third Reich

Up 'n' Under

"Here on the very playing fields of Castleford your eyes will gaze in awe at splendid sights unseen.....for here, upon this very stage, we see amateur Rugby League, a game of rebellion, born of divide in 1895. For the working class of the North, for the working class"

Up 'n' Under follows the story of an inept pub team from the Wheatsheaf Arms who play in 7 a-side league in the Hull area. Ex-pro Arthur's only passions in life are his wife and rugby league.

When he bumps into his nemesis Reg, he is goaded into betting his life savings that he can train any team to beat the unstoppable gods of amateur rugby league - The Cobblers Arms. However, the 'Wheatsheaf Arms' can usually only muster a side of four. These guys are to Rugby League what Eddie The Eagle is to ski-jumping. Song, laughter, banter and live rugby on stage - come join our intrepid heroes as they struggle through adversity.

Not suitable for younger children. Mild sexual references and bad language.
