Football tales in brand new play

FOOTBALLER turned journalist David McVay’s hilarious memoir Steak....Diana Ross gets the theatrical treatment at Nottingham Playhouse later this year.

This new play is called Diary Of A Football Nobody and is written by acclaimed Nottinghamshire writer William Ivory, whose recent successes include the screenplay for Made In Dagenham and his TV adaptation of DH Lawrence’s Women In Love.

It’s a candid, warts-and-all tale of what is was like to play football in the 1970s, a world far removed from the riches and celebrity of the modern game.

Full of down-to-earth comedy and tales of boozing, bust-ups and the unique style of the legendary Jimmy Sirrel, Diary Of A Nobody takes audiences on a light-hearted journey to a bygone age of football and marks Notts County’s 150th anniversary.

It can be seen at Nottingham Playhouse from October 5-20. Ticket details are available by calling the box office on 0115 9419419.
