The Beautiful Game

Next Door Dance, with Arts Council England, presents:

Football. Some love it, others loathe it, but we can’t deny that it is somehow present in all of our lives.  The Beautiful Game is a laugh-out-loud look at Britain’s undying obsession with football, celebrating everything from weird match day rituals to ridiculous arm chair punditry. Passionately performed by four females, The Beautiful Game will lead you through the highs and lows of being a British football fan. It may even attempt to explain the offside rule.

Packed with unforgettable goals, set to a backdrop of chant-along hits and full to the brim with nostalgia, this show will have you casting your mind back to fixtures gone by.

It is a show for all the family, for both the fanatic and the impartial spectator. Even if you don’t like football, even if you despise football, The Beautiful Game will persuade you of its charms.

Suitable for ages 7+.

‘…. A joyous nostalgia trip…. They shoot, and at the first attempt, they score.’
