Match Previews

Preview Steak, Diana Ross

4 September 2012

Don't miss out on the pre-match with the man behind an upcoming Notts County play...

The next major event in our 150th year programme of celebrations is the Nottingham Playhouse production of the play The Diary of a Football Nobody, running from 5 to 20 October.

Its author, William Ivory, himself a Magpies’ fan, will be our special guest for our next home fixture against Shrewsbury on 8 September, only four weeks before “curtain up”.

Colin Slater will interview him in Wheeler’s for the benefit of supporters taking advantage of our attractive hospitality package.

Like much of Billy Ivory’s writing for cinema, television and the theatre the play is drawn from real life, being based on the book Steak, Diana Ross by former Notts player David McVay from his time at Meadow Lane.

The Playhouse reports strong demand for advance bookings, not least for the Gala Night on 11 October when players from the 1970s, who feature in the book and the play, will be present and introduced to the audience.

Billy’s most recent work was an acclaimed Olympic drama, Bert and Dickie, the latest in a succession of hits since his breakthrough with the BBC TV series Common as Muck in the mid-1970s.

The stories about the writing and production of The Diary of a Football Nobody is an occasion not to be missed. The advice is to book early.
