Theatre Of Spud

February 14th, 1984.

Somewhere in the English Midlands, a humble local side will for the second time battle the mighty Liverpool in the football cup tie of a lifetime.

And across town on this cold foggy night, Edward Lionheart debuts his youth production of Arms and the Man.

Amid technical hitches, one withering critic and a diabolical director, can a young boy called Spud save this theatre from disaster?
