"Playing Away" is about the cultural clash that takes place when the residents of a small, affluent, and idyllic village in Suffolk invite a West Indian cricket team for the weekend to participate in a match highlighting the village's ''Third World Week.'' Mostly molded from Jamaicans who have immigrated to the rough-and-tumble Brixton section of London, the visitors remain unsurprised by the manners of their rich, bucolic hosts, and the indigenous townspeople's rough crudeness. In addition to the match that is the weekend's climax, there are the vicar's reception, special Sunday-morning services in the ancient church, impromptu, boozy confrontations in the pub, and late-night connections on the grass.
