Cloughie at Birmingham Rep - Win tickets here

Last updated : 22 April 2006 By Holgate
Win a pair of tickets for the Tuesday 25th April performance

'Old Big ‘Ead in The Spirit of the Man'
is a hilarious new comedy that follows Brian Clough beyond the Final Whistle and into extra time. Not one to take death lying down, Old Big ‘Ead jumps at the chance of returning to this earthly realm to dispense his own special brand of inspiration.

A love of the spotlight, an ego the size of a stadium; perhaps Cloughie always belonged on the stage. Even after a transfer to the Other Side it's impossible to keep a good manager down.

In the afterlife of Brian he is keen to prove that he is not just the greatest manager England never had but one of its greatest comedians too.
