Live and Local – The Foundry Group

The Foundry Group presents ‘Underdogs’ at Taddington Village Institute on Friday 8 March 7:30
When they’re in a hole, some people start digging. In an overlooked pub in a left-behind town, an unlikely hero and his would-be agent plot to put themselves on the map via an insane World Record attempt – the longest time buried alive. That’s five months in an oversized coffin, under a tiny beer garden in the middle of Mansfield. A true and often hilarious tale of courage, endurance, hope, despair, love, lies and media manipulation.
The world premiere of Underdogs took place at Brighton’s Rialto Theatre as part of Brighton Fringe, 24th-28th May 2022 and was the winner of the OffFEST Award for Theatre, Brighton Fringe 2022.

“…on the surface about a bizarre record attempt; underneath an indictment of society’s attitude to the little people.” – Chris Neville-Smith

“The Foundry Group’s new play crackles with sharp one-liners… subtly layered with universal themes of love and loss. Highly recommended.” – Fringe Review

“Enchanting comedy… clever and endearing.” GScene
