A casting call has been made for people to be part of a crowd scene for a BBC drama being shot at the Racecourse Ground in May.

The ‘Marvellous’ drama shoot is taking place next week (8th and 9th of May) and extras in the scene will be portraying Stoke City Supporters as the drama is based on Neil Baldwin.

The BBC Press Office says “Ninety minute single Drama Marvellous tells the true story of Neil Baldwin (played by Toby Jones), a man once labelled with ‘learning difficulties’ whose life defies limitations.”

Baldwin was at one point in his life kit-man at Stoke, thus the scenes involving football.
