Playing the Games is a two week celebration packed full of cultural and sporting talent, ranging from the emerging to the world-famous from 26 July to 12 August 2012.
TAKING PART, by Adam Brace, is a funny, timely tale of true grit, self belief and canny opportunism.
Lucky Henry, a Congolese security guard, has set his sights on representing his country at the 2012 Olympics. Only one problem; he’s a terrible swimmer and his Russian coach wants to fly home on the first day of training. Everyone loves an underdog – think Eddie the Eagle or Eric the Eel. Follow Henry’s journey from deep end straggler to Olympic hopeful as the two men try to fulfill their dreams at the London games.
Adam Brace's previous plays include Stovepipe, Midnight Your Time and The Four Stages of Cruelty.
