Alan Ledger didn’t want the limelight and he didn’t want the praise. Unfortunately, he often got one, but hardly ever got the other. Join Alan on his journey through the murky, monetary mayhem lurking behind the scenes of Scottish football, as he asks:

‘Who is football for? Why do fans insist on pies? What kind of oddbod would put money into a football club?’

All these questions and more are mostly ignored in this hilarious comedy.

The comedy drama is about self-deluding men and wiser women; financial insanity, football and pies, co-written by Bryan Jackson – fiscal saviour of seven football clubs including Hearts, Dundee and Dunfermline – and David Belcher, directed by Frank Miller. It was a hit at last year’s Glasgow Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Fringe.

“If you’re already up-to-speed with the rollercoaster fortunes of Scotland’s football teams then you will relish the on-stage shenanigans that take energy and anecdotes from the experiences of co-writers Bryan Jackson and David Belcher – Belcher, an erstwhile journalist at the Herald, Jackson an accountant whose expertise has brought several clubs back from the brink. However ignorance of footie foibles is not a problem here.

The tongue-in-cheek send-ups – where everything from nasal-drawling radio jocks to loud-mouthed, braying tycoons gets spoofed – are wickedly funny, while director Frank Miller and a sparky, match-ready cast embrace the tragi-comic nature of board-room games-play with an infectious glee.”
