Playing Away, DVD


Friendships and hostilities vie for attention when a West Indian cricket team from Brixton plays a team from a Suffolk village.

Invited to participate in their 'Third World Week' celebrations, a cricket team made up of West Indians from Brixton arrives in a small, upmarket Suffolk village to play the locals.

Cross-cultural relations soon take a knock, however, as the members of the rival teams choose to settle their own internal issues, before moving on to those of the opposition during the match itself.
