About this event

Backyard Ashes is an entertaining family comedy that uses the famous Australian pastime of backyard cricket as an analogy for the bitter sporting rivalry between England and Australia.

Dougie Waters loves nothing more than a weekend Barbie and a cricket match with his mates. But his paradise is destroyed when his best mate and neighbour Norm is forced to leave town and their new boss, a pompous English administrator called Edward Lords, moves in.
