Award-winning writer Dougie Blaxland portrays the life of cricketing legend Colin 'Ollie' Milburn, complete with songs and anecdotes, during When The Eye Has Gone at Everyman Studio Theatre.

Roughhouse Theatre and Live Wire Theatre Companies will take to the stage at Everyman Studio Theatre with When The Eye Has Gone, following the all-too brief life of cricketing legend Colin ‘Ollie’ Milburn.

The story of England’s unlikely sporting hero will be brought to life on Friday 3 and Saturday 4 March 2017, along with songs, anecdotes and a large gin and coke, switching between Milburn’s triumphs and hardships in life, from cricketing highs to the tragic accident of losing an eye.

Set in the 1990s during Milburn’s final cabaret performance as ‘Jolly Ollie’, the story, written by award-winning Dougie Blaxland, is sure to provide compelling entertainment in Cheltenham.

Please note, this production takes place in the Everyman Studio Theatre.
