GENRE: Based on a True Story
Everyman is pleased to welcome comedian Tony Hawks for a live performance following this screening.
Based on his best selling book by the same name, Tony Hawks' Playing the Moldovans at Tennis tells the story of how Tony, as he watched TV coverage of England beating Moldova 4-0 at football in September 1997, made a wager with his friend, the comedian Arthur Smith, that he could track down all 11 of the Moldovan players and beat them at tennis.
Attempting the unlikely feat by spending several weeks in Moldova, Ireland and Israel, his journey takes on many unexpected turns - from a lighthearted bet to a serious desire to prove to his host family that it is possible to complete surprising and unexpected tasks and to have a positive outlook on life.
