DUNWEARY FC is on its knees. Not the most useful position for a club that needs to score goals in order to avoid relegation. But if the players have trouble passing the ball accurately, Dunweary’s owner, its board and manager are adept at passing the buck when it comes to the club’s imminent bankruptcy.
Enter Alan Ledger, the unassuming accountant whose tactics for side-stepping insolvency are soon falling foul of the blazer-wearing cabal who run Dunweary for the benefit of their own egos. There is also the matter of the famously popular pies. Lose them and it’s game over, permanently, for Dunweary.
“One in the back of the net with a blast of a cast and a script dripped with dollops of wry pie talk — brilliant” John Hegley
"The tongue-in-cheek send-ups ... are wickedly funny, while director Frank Miller and a sparky, match-ready cast embrace the tragi-comic nature of board-room games-play with an infectious glee." Herald Scotland, 4 stars
