This powerful, touching locker room drama reaches beyond the beautiful game. It explores contrasting ideas about loyalty, ambition and what it takes to win, from the perspectives of three different generations.

New revival of Marber's play looking at different generations of football fans.

Transfer from Live Theatre in Newcastle.

“Tompkinson takes what could – in lesser hands – descend into trite posturing and gives it a real edge.”

The Stage (Other reviewers)

“This revival reveals it in new lights – yet retains its essential power... A darker and deeper version, full of suppressed anger”

Sarah Crompton (What's On Stage, Guardian)

“Looking lean and limber in this lovely, lively production, it’s a title contender... It’s a pleasure to watch Tompkinson.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Has become a rather apt 90 minutes. It works... The more intimate setting of Trafalgar Studios suits Marber’s piece to a tee.”

Chris Bennion (The Times, The Stage, Telegraph)

“Feels like this play has found its ideal size... Tompkinson and Bowler brilliantly build up their uneasy co-existence.”

Tim Bano (The Stage, Time Out)
