‘The Twelfth Man’ is set in the dressing rooms of the cricket oval getting ready for a women’s game. What a group of women they are. We have Alice (Debbie Bate) who insists that everything is done the way she wants it; Jean (Lynda Hart) an old friend of Alice’s but she has a real grudge to settle with her so this may be the time; Hilda (Shelley Charlton) loves the smokes, hasn’t played cricket with any of them before, and is a pretty hard nut. Sally (Bev Brocklebank) is a very pleasant girl who always wants to please everyone, but this time it may be a little hard. Then we have Anne (Karyn Shanks), who has played the game before, and doesn’t really like to make a decision - or does she! Isobel( Kura Geere-Watson) is just there to play cricket and has seen it all before.

Then things get interesting, with the aid of two day release prisoners along with their warder (Pauline Hirst), brought in to boost the numbers. Jolene (Amanda Tucker) a rough little number who can’t wait to get the cuffs off and look out, its all on! Margaret (Nikki Kent) on the other hand likes the thought of making a run for it, so lets see how far they get. Along to watch the game comes their two male friends, who may have something else on their minds. Duncan (John Ferguson) and Noel (Jason Brown) are here for the opportunity to break the girls out and recover the money they stole when they all robbed the local Post Office. What they didn’t count on was the opposition team blocking in their get-away car and sending their plans in a spin. So what about the warder? Well, she needs to be taken out of the picture but they can’t get the aid of the caretaker / groundsman Brian (Jack Mead) to help them, as he is too busy going off for a good time.

Sounds like a good laugh? Yes it is. And how do they get on? Well you will just have to come and see. Opens September 12th, and closes 20th
