About The Red Lion

Rapture Theatre In Association with The Palace Theatre in Kilmarnock

Presents The Red Lion by Patrick Marber

The Red Lion FC is a non-league side who have dreams of the big time. However, their manager, Kidd, will stop at nothing to realise his own ambitions of money and fame. So when a talented young player, Jordan, turns up for a trial, Kidd sees his golden opportunity. But Yates, the kit-man and club legend, has other ideas. A battle of wills ensues between Yates and Kidd over the future of Jordan and the future of the football club.

Following The Red Lion’s sell-out run in London’s West End, Rapture Theatre is delighted to present a brand new production of Patrick Marber’s hit comedy about “the beautiful game”. Emmerdale and Brookside actor John McArdle will lead an all-star cast in what promises to be a funny, touching and unmissable night at the theatre.

Age Recommendation 14+

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Red Lion are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
