Football was not always a game for the masses. In the 1800’s the first players to compete for the FA Cup were lords, knights and peers, in essence, a game for the wealthy and privileged. The pivotal moment happened when a group of mill workers from Darwen in Lancashire joined two talented Glaswegians to change football. The play tells the untold, true story of the Darwen vs The Old Etonians FA Cup tie. A story of a town that finds its voice and a team that change the beautiful game forever. They are, The Giant Killers, brought to stage to uplift and inspire.
