Abstract:

Step into the lives of a team of regular middle-aged men who meet each week to play cricket in their local park. They dont seem to be extraordinarythey are just like the rest of usbut like everyone, they each have a story to tell. Meet the bus driver with no sense of direction; the bride on the morning of her wedding who looks out onto the oval that she has seen from her bedroom window every day of her life and now thinks about marriage and her own home; meet Chris who brings the team together and wears foot-crunching shoes just to please his wife and mother. Meet the cricketer who only plays each weekend because he loves hearing the piano music that wafts out from a nearby hall. Through Williams ability to spin a yarn, the players, their families and the people who stop to watch the game all come to life. With these characters William will make us laugh and cry. And never again will we think that someone is just a regular blokeeveryone can be a king or a queen in their own suburb.
