Written and Directed by Lynne Harvey
Slipping is about a man who realises he never was going to be a top class cricketer. However this realisation at 51, has come far too late for him, his team mates and his family.
Slipping is set in a parochial cricket pavilion in winter; the closed season, but to Nick, a match is about to start, the match he trained all his life for.
When England, England Lions, Derbyshire or Yorkshire Cricket teams are playing there will be live rolling scores in the box below.

Lynne cleaning up after filming. Take three males, three days rehearsal, two days filming and a pavillion with the water switched off for winter. The result is one stinky mens toilet. **PLEASE NOTE THE TOILETS AT THE CRICKET PAVILLION ARE NORMALLY CLEAN AND SPARKLING AND SMELL SWEETLY**
