Minded us of the play Lieutenant of Innismore, seen on London stage 2 yrs ago., starring the Poldark guy- AND JUST AS GOOD. No bulging biceps here ( one guy’s,“ built like a fiver!”), but fantastically gripping emotional journey, with a mix of comedy thrown in. This is a well-written, quality performance; lively, LOUD, gripping- THEATRE!! C’MON YOU HIBIES!

If you’re a Hibs supporter you’ll love this play. If you’re not in any way shape or form a football fan, you’ll still love this play. Very clever script leading to plenty of laughs and sharp intakes of breath now and then! Committed and convincing cast who clearly work incredibly well as a team. Well worth visiting the Wee Red Bar to see this play for an hour plus of excitement, happiness, grief, anticipation and joy.

I read about this play over the past few years, but because I'd read mainly about the association with football and Hibs, I was kind of put off by it....I'm not really a football kind of guy. Decided to go and see it this year though anyway as I was going to see a different play by the same writer at the same venue just before it (The Candy Factory), so thought I might as well stay and see this one as well. I was blown away by it actually. Much much better than I had imagined it to be. Really funny, moving, uplifting and sad at different points of the play. You don't really have to be a 'football kind of guy' to enjoy this play. It does help I suppose, but it's also about much more than that. It's about friendship, family, loyalty, betrayal, death and mourning. A great show and I would recommend it to anyone!

It’s 2016. Hibernian F.C. haven’t won the Scottish Cup since 1902. Now, four guys in their early twenties would do anything to see the final against the Rangers… Deeks (Nathan Scott Dunn) buys the tickets for the match for him and his best friends (Gregor Copeland, Cameron Docker and Josh...

The play deals with many themes, from brotherhood to addiction. It also explores the similarities between the addiction of football to the addiction of drugs. It shows a group of young adults all struggling with a problem, but all unified by their motivation to be better.

The show is simply an amazing display of theatre
