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.

Following a celebrated 5-star debut at Edinburgh Fringe Festival and a nationwide tour of the UK, Long Lane Theatre Company are excited to be bringing this sort after play back to Edinburgh for the 2022 festival.

The Actress

A Long Lane Theatre Company Production

Written and directed by Andrew Pearson-Wright

1660, London England. Charles II has returned to the country to take the throne and immediately reopened the theatres. Speculation is swirling around London that for the first time a woman will be allowed onto the stage. The Kings company invite two very different women, from very different backgrounds to join them, planning to use only one of them for the role of Desdemona in their upcoming production of Othello. Eventually the choice is made - Anne Marshall becomes the first professional actress of the British stage but while her competitor Margaret Hughes rises to fame and fortune Anne becomes a forgotten footnote in History, eventually even having this incredible achievement taken from her and attributed to Margaret. This new play explores why that was and tells the incredible true story of the two woman that would shape the paths of those that would follow them.
