The Giant Killers

White Rock Theatre, White Rock, Hastings

Tuesday October 16, 7.30pm

Tickets £15/concs £2 off/Friends £3 off

This inspiring true story of football’s greatest ever underdogs is directed by Andrew Loudon, who directed the West End productions of Carrie’s War, Little Women and Cool Hand Luke. Set in the early years of Association Football, The Giant Killers follows a ragtag bunch of Lancashire mill workers who defied all odds to become the first working-class team in the country to play in the FA Cup. Left tired and despondent from the cotton famine of the 1870s, this small group of northern lads found pride and hope in a game that up until then had been reserved for the upper classes.  Darwen FC rose up against prevailing social prejudice and the might of the Football Association to earn a place in history as the first real ‘giant-killers’ in English football, and take on the “poshest team of all” – The Old Etonians.
