When The Eye Has Gone [GT Studio]

E-mail Print PDF


Tue 14 March 2017

When The Eye Has Gone tells the all too brief life of Colin ‘Ollie’ Milburn - the cricketing legend who was one of England’s most unlikely sporting heroes.

With a thumping soundtrack, anecdotes and a large gin and coke, the story swings backwards and forwards through Milburn’s life as he raises a glass to his triumphs, including his first Test Century against the West Indies at Lords in 1966 and his disasters, like losing his left eye in a car accident in 1969.

This critically acclaimed one man show by Dougie Blaxland is directed by Roughhouse Theatre. Commissioned by the Professional Cricketer’s Association, When The Eye Has Gone originally toured the country in Oct/Nov 2016.

...brimming with charisma and honesty. Blaxland has skillfully worked Milburn’s life into an arresting parable.
The Stage
what makes Blaxland’s piece so compelling is that Milburn’s is a universal tale…(his) exuberance was brilliantly resurrected by Dan Gaisford
Daily Telegraph
a mesmeric virtuoso performance which was every bit as gripping as one of Milburn’s swashbuckling innings
Kent Online
a tour de force
Bath Chronicle
Roughhouse Theatre has created a brilliant show whose boundaries extend well beyond the world of cricket
