Mushy Ate My Credit Card

Martin Williamson

It must be a legspinner thing, but a year after a play about Shane Warne, Sussex have announced a one-man theatrical extravaganza about their 2003 County Championship success called Mushy Ate My Credit Card. No, we are none the wiser either.

Written and performed by Mark Brailsford, this “comical and dramatic new play” will be performed at The County Ground, Hove between October 21 and 31.

The publicity blurb continues: “Sam Smith’s love of watching cricket leads to an extraordinary personal journey as the legends of the 2003 team including Mushtaq Ahmed light the blue and white touch-paper of the most successful decade in Sussex’s history. Sam’s life, wife (and credit score) will never be the same again.”
