Keeping the Score

By Martyn Wade. Gerald owns a score box at his village cricket ground, but it's put to most use in the winter months, something his wife has never found out and which Gerald is determined she never shall.

Music arranged and played by Neil Brand.

Directed by Jane Morgan.

Martyn Wade was prompted to write Keeping the Score by the actor David Troughton, who as Martyn remembers it, suggested that he write a play about two men in a score box. At the time Martyn wasn't even sure what a score box was and certainly couldn't think what two men would talk about in such a place, but the idea stayed with him and the result is a delightful play, which requires absolutely no knowledge of, nor enthusiasm for, the game of cricket.
