A Brian Clough tribute play - a comic celebration of the spirit of Nottingham and its greatest hero His style was legendary. The last great working- class hero, Cloughie was the man in the green jumper who threw out the rule-book and inspired the men of the Forest to their greatest victories.Even after a transfer to the Other Side it's impossible to keep a good manager down. But in the afterlife of Brian, there's a very different sort of team lost in the Forest - and leading a band of theatre-makers to glory is a whole new ball-game A love of the spotlight, an ego the size of a stadium: perhaps Old Big 'Ead always belonged on the stage. Now Nottingham's finest - and Derby's too - proves he's not just the greatest manager England never had, but the greatest stand-up comic as well. Celebrate the courage and the conviction, the tears and the triumphs - the spirit of the man.
