Based on Richard Harris's stage production, Outside Edge follows the lives of two couples, who bond only through the local cricket league.
Roger (Robert Daws) and Miriam (Brenda Blethyn) couldn't be more different to Kevin (Timothy Spall) and Maggie (Josie Lawrence) but when they are thrown together, Maggie and Mim become good friends and learn from one another. Kevin and Maggie's passionate relationship forces Mim to analyse her own marriage whilst Roger is too busy obsessing over the following week's match.
Harris gently satirises middle class England through the members of Brent Park Cricket Club, all of whom have their own dysfunctional relationships and family problems.
