October 2nd 2018
By: Melanie Hollidge

If you are looking for a bit of culture in Chigwell, Outside Edge is a comedy by Richard Harris performed by Chigwell Row Operatic and Dramatic Society. Clearly, Essex is a cricket county and in the wake of England’s success against India in the test this summer English cricket has lots to celebrate. But according to the playwright Outside Edge is not a play just about cricket, but a play about people. 

Outside Edge will be performed in Chigwell at Victory Hall, Chigwell, Essex IG7 6QX at 7.45pm from Wednesday 3rd October 2018 to Saturday 6th October 2018.  It was first performed in 1979 and continues to be performed every weekend through the cricket season, in various villages and towns around the country.

Playing cricket will always involve much more than willow hitting leather. And for any of you cricket players in Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford you are bound to have met similar characters in the play in real life and for those of you who are not cricket fans then we feel sure that you will have come across one or two of these people at some time and will enjoy the comedy.

They are well known as a friendly, open, self-funding Chigwell amateur dramatics company. The company aim is always to enjoy themselves, whilst staging the best productions that they can. And no matter what they do, they always do it with heart and enthusiasm and with gratitude for the support of the amazing local audiences.
