He shot, he scored, it must be Peter Ward.
It’s the mid-1970s, Alan Mullery is the new manager of Brighton & Hove Albion after another failed promotion attempt. Twenty year-old Peter Ward breaks the Albion’s goalscoring record, earning his place in the hearts and history of the club; Wardie Wonderland is still sung on the terraces when Brighton answer Sussex’s call.
Using humour and pathos, this new one-man play tells the story of four supporters as they follow their beloved Seagulls through the momentous season of 1976/77.
Laugh out loud and cry into your football scarf – a show for anyone who’s ever followed a team, and their dreams.
This new play shares the stories of four supporters as they follow their beloved Seagulls through the season of 1976/78 in Division 3 – and witnessed the beginning of a legend.
