The Long Walk Back
April 19, 2019 @ 8:00 pm
Produced by RoughHouse Theatre and Live Wire Theatre
Based on real live events, The Long Walk Back tells the epic story of
an international sporting star’s catastrophic fall from grace.
England cricketer Chris Lewis enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame and
fortune in the 1990s. Playing 85 Tests and One Day Internationals for
England he seemed on the verge of greatness when he was named
England’s International Cricketer of The Year in 1994.
Within months of his cricketing career ending, however, his life lay
in ruins when he was sentenced to 13 years in prison for smuggling
cocaine into the UK.
Beginning with his arrest at Gatwick Airport in 2008 and an attempted
suicide on his first night in custody, The Long Walk Back charts the
extraordinary journey that took Lewis from the brink of despair to a
profound moral awakening.
Stay in your seats for a post-show Q&A session with Chris Lewis and
RoughHouse Theatre Director Shane Morgan.
