Director Carl Russell, said: “LBDG has a great reputation for delivering quality drama, but I think it’s important that we are never afraid to tackle new writing and more ‘off the wall’ material.

“Gods Official was both these. It was extremely challenging for the actors [Russell Bennett, Ben Clarke and Rob Taylor ] and I was delighted by how willingly they were prepared to fully immerse themselves in their roles and put in the hard graft that this excellent script demands. To use the footballing vernacular, I’m over the moon - ‘The boys done good’!”
