About the show

2h 0m | In Previews: Opens Sep 27 | Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (Midtown W)

MTC presents a new comedy by the author of the rollicking, award-winning Broadway comedy 'One Man, Two Guvnors,' which offers a comic look at the world of snooker – the British version of pool. More…

Dylan Spokes, a fast-rising young star, arrives for a championship tournament only to be confronted by the authorities warning him of the repercussions of match fixing. Before he knows it, Dylan is forced into underhanded dealings with a cast of wildly colorful characters that include his ex-convict dad, saucy mum, quick-tongued manager, and a renowned gangster, to boot. It’s a fast-paced comedy thriller where, in an exciting twist, the tournament unfolds live on stage.
