Mismatch
If Neville Rampling had known who was really playing at Watergate Meadow, he would never have agreed to referee that Saturday.

Hampered by a wife hell-bent on buying D.I.Y. furniture, a club chairman as crooked as a corkscrew, and a strange Polish `train-spotter`, Neville (or ist Norman ?) becomes involved in pre-match preparations which are a comic drama of epic proportions.

Can Samantha with her clipboard keep everyone in check, on cue, in costume - and disentagle her love life ? The play has been designed to be performed either by itself or as the second part of a double bill with BACKGROUND ARTIST.
