Rugby comedy comes to Oldham

David Upton

Oldham Coliseum is reviving John Godber’s Olivier Award-winning underdog comedy Up ’N’ Under from October 6.

It’s the underdog story that brings the world of amateur rugby league up, close and personal.

With six actors and a rugby ball, and as much ballet as ball-game, this physical comedy premièred in 1984 and won the Olivier for Best New Comedy the same year.
