Dylan isn't your typical snooker player.

He's a vegetarian, for starters.

This is the biggest week of his life and everybody wants a piece of him – his ex-con Dad, local gangster Waxy Chuff and the snooker corruption squad.

The Nap is a laugh out loud comedy thriller about love, honour and not getting snookered.

It centres around Dylan Spokes, a professional snooker player, born and raised in Sheffield.

Dylan is preparing for a big match, but not only are his friends and family getting in the way, but he is visited by police investigating match fixing.

The Nap is a farce by award-winning playwright, Richard Bean, with plenty of sharp lines, jokes and an array of hilarious characters.

The play includes a live snooker match, with comic commentary.

It opened at the Sheffield Crucible in 2016 and later on Broadway by the Manhattan Theatre Club.
