GETTING THE THIRD DEGREE BY DOUGIE BLAXLAND - ROUGH HOUSE THEATRE & LIVE WIRE THEATRE

Salford Arts Theatre, Salford, M5 4BS
Thu 7th November 2019 - Fri 8th November 2019
In dramatising Laurie Cunningham’s meteoric rise to stardom Getting The Third Degree also explores how he and his fellow black players - Brendon Batson and Cyrille Regis - triumphed over the racial abuse and physical threats often orchestrated by The National Front through a potent combination of footballing brilliance, charismatic style and compelling dignity. 

Incorporating 1970’s funk, soul and blues, contemporary commentary and social and political speeches, Getting The Third Degree is a powerful piece of theatre that vividly recreates a tense and troubled period in the history of football and the wider society.
