Stand and Deliver!
Set against the backdrop of 80s chart music and football terrace songs, this is the incredible and unlikely story of Frank, an ordinary man, who unearths an old fanzine in a box of memorabilia. He begins reminiscing about the days of his youth in the 1980s and finds inspiration to follow his lifelong dream to become a highwayman with hilarious consequences.
The story begins in Frank’s garage where he recalls his strange experiences following Enfield FC’s heroic FA Cup run and his warped memories of when he was invited to be a part of the FA Cup draw.
Frank’s kids, Paris and Antwerp, find a copy of an award-winning magazine, Naughty Sport, which has magical powers and a whole host of fantastic events ensue which include a time travelling escapade to 1731 and encounters with a number of local and national celebrities from both the past and modern day.
Unbeknown to Frank, his exciting garage clear out is being observed and commentated on ‘Big Brother style’ by pundits Motson Pearce and Mmbop Hansen in their TV programme, Mad World Of Sport.
You’ll be reminded of such classics as Camberwick Green, the Benny Hill Show, Hi De Hi and The Wizard of Oz in a frenzied variation of humour styles that swing wildly from modern day observational comedy to Pythonesque sketches and innuendo-filled scenes that will take you back to the days of Carry On films!
Subject to licence, you’ll hear the music of the great artists of the ‘80s including Tears For Fears, The Jam, Queen, Adam and the Ants, Rick Astley and David Bowie.
