From the Wimbledon finals to the hangman’s noose this is a comedy about love, murder and tennis. This true(ish) and terrible tale of Irish sporting legend Vere St. Ledger Goold and his mercenary wife Marie Violet charts an extraordinary globe-trotting journey from the heady heights of sporting stardom to complete catastrophe.

CheeryWild Productions have starched their whites, re-stretched their racquets and are ready to serve a virtuoso volley of Victorian melodrama with this rapid-fire, homicidal train ride from passion to pandemonium.
