About the Show Less...

Take one struggling playwright desperate for inspiration for his new play. Then send him the most unlikely mentor in the guise of Brian Clough, Nottingham Forest’s legendary football manager, eerily portrayed by the striking Colin Tarrant. Read More >

Old Big 'Ead - Richmond - Mar06 - 180

In Stephen Lowe’s heavenly new play, Cloughie is back from the beyond larger than life with plenty of advice for the floundering writer. With the play finally written and a bunch of dysfunctional actors thrown together, Clough wastes no time in helping to knock the team into shape.

In this off the wall comedy, The Spirit Of The Man takes Cloughie away from the realm of football and into a more unusual world of theatre with some tremendously funny moments. And whilst it is not a biography of Clough’s life, it is a homage to a man whose abilities know no bounds.

Celebrate the courage and the conviction, the tears and the triumphs – the spirit of the man.
