REVIEWS

Appealing across the gender divide, this is a witty ‘Harry Met Sally’ rom com through the prism of the sports’ commentary box, all in 30 minutes. Feeny-Williams manages expertly to combine football punditry with a genuinely affecting on off romance. She also succeeds in making us care for the football commentators as more than a mere script device. This definitely would be a hit in any playwriting festival or as a short film with its touching ‘Shaun of The Dead’-type relationship humour and clever structure. – Alice Josephs (New Play Exchange)
