About The Red Lion

Three generations explore contrasting ideas about loyalty, ambition and what it takes to win in this powerful locker room drama from multi award winning writer Patrick Marber. A promising young football player arrives at a struggling non-league club and pits the veteran kit man against the ambitious manager who’ll do anything to keep the club and himself afloat. 

Directed by Max Roberts, this new version of The Red Lion transfers to London following a sell-out run at Live Theatre and stars Stephen Tompkinson (DCI Banks, Drop the Dead Donkey), John Bowler (DCI Banks, The Bill) and Dean Bone (Vera).

 In a play that resonates in contemporary British society, The Red Lion goes far beyond the pitch to look at hope, obsessions and the desperation of humanity to be a part of something.
