 Set in a Cricket Pavilion, Outside Edge deals with an eventful Saturday afternoon in the lives of five men and four women. Roger is having trouble getting a team together for the afternoons fixture but this proves to be the least of anyone's worries.

  Bob is having marriage trouble as he is still doing odd jobs for his ex-wife behind his current wife's back. Dennis is also having marital trouble as his wife seems intent on moving house despite the fact they only moved recently. When he finally puts his foot down she sets fire to his new car. Kevin is trying to fight off his over affectionate wife Maggie while at the same time nurse his injured spinning finger and Alex's new girlfriend ends up shutting herself in the toilets having hysterics. Even Roger's seemingly perfect marriage to Miriam hits the skids when she discovers he has been playing away from home in more ways than one. Just when it seems things can't get any worse... it starts to rain!!
