Robert Farquhar's hilarious farce is a hyperactive tale of loyalties and injustice. Devastated that a dodgy refereeing decision has condemned their beloved football team to relegation, Cliff and Degsy seek retribution by abducting the referee. As their half-baked plan goes increasingly awry, the captivated offical has his Christian faith to draw on. whereas his clueless captors can barely muster a coherent thought between them.
