Playwright Samuel Beckett was a cricketer and the only Nobel prize-winner to feature in the pages of Wisden as a first-class player, while his friend and fellow Nobel prize-winner Harold Pinter described cricket as the greatest thing that God created on earth. A brilliant new play Stumped staring Stephen Tompkinson as Samuel Beckett (Brassed Off, Drop the Dead Donkey, DCI Banks, Wild at Heart) and Andrew Lancel (The Bill, Coronation Street) as Harold Pinter gives a wonderful insight into their friendship, a tribute to their writing and of course their love for the game of cricket.
