The Long Walk Back

The Long Walk Back

By Dougie Blaxland
Produced by RoughHouse Theatre and Live Wire Theatre

Based on real life events, The Long Walk Back tells the epic story of an international
sporting star’s catastrophic fall from grace. England cricketing all-rounder 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.

There will be a post-show Q&A session with Chris Lewis and RoughHouse Theatre
Director Shane Morgan.

We're sorry but there are no upcoming dates for this event.
