‘Legend’ The Tom Finney Story
The Story of A Man
And a Dream!
LEGEND – The birth of a Football Musical
As far as we know, this was the first ever full-length musical about football. Taking over a year to research, write and produce, ‘LEGEND’ tells the story of one of the game’s all-time greats, Sir Tom Finney and the fans upon whom he had such an unbelievable impact.
‘LEGEND’ is so much more than a musical about football. It is the story of Preston itself and the dreams of ordinary people played out on the Deepdale pitch – every other Saturday. It is also the story of the ‘under-dog’ – Finney was thought too small to make it – and of how passion and commitment can overcome even the greatest obstacles to our dreams.

What if Romeo and Juliet had lived? Can true-love transcend real life? A life of thwarted ambition, financial hardship and dirty nappies.
This original drama written in verse captivated young audiences across the UK.

As the conflict intensifies below his window, Kruger checks the war-time revolver in his desk. If Anya is who he thinks she is – he will have to use it!
As a game of cat and mouse begins, long buried bitter issues of tyranny and racial hatred begin to surface, reaching their climax in a soul-shattering conclusion.
