    Set up in a bet with his arch rival Reg, our hot-headed hero Arthur discovers he has to coach The Wheatsheaf Arms; bottom of Castleford’s Amateur Rugby League who have never won a game, don’t have 7 players and spend more time in the pub than on the pitch.
    They need to beat Reg’s team The Cobblers Arms who are top of the league, superbly fit, physically enormous and terrify every team they play.

    But how does Arthur train his new team? They are Deaf, he doesn't sign and he only has 5 weeks to get his team into shape or he loses his house in the bet.   

    This fast moving and witty re-telling of John Godber’s award winning and much loved play, Up n Under, will delight audiences, bringing together fingermiths’ visual and physical storytelling with a cast of Deaf and hearing actors using British Sign Language and spoken English.
