Outside Edge, 1994

Outside Edge was a TV sitcom adapted from a 1979 play of the same name.

The play was first adapted as a one off TV show before it’s final adaptation to a series in 1994.

Outside Edge ran for twenty two episodes over three series between 1994 and 1996.


Outside Edge follows the lives of two couples, who bond only through the local cricket league.
