REF! Crossing The Line at Castleford Phoenix

February 15 at 7:15 pm

Ref – Inspired by Julia Lee, the first female to referee male games
Ref! tells the heartwarming, humorous tale of Alex’s fight to become one of the first women rugby league referees in Britain to be in charge of men’s matches. Moving from the 1980s to the present Ref! charts the story of Alex’s rise from a kid obsessed with watching the game to her tussles and triumphs to be totally involved, in charge right in the middle of the game. This is a universal story of how a woman – against the odds – proves she can succeed and triumph.

There will be a Q and A session following the performance with the performers and Julia Lee.
