Some love it, others loathe it, but we can’t avoid it – it’s everywhere! A laugh-out-loud look at our undying obsession with football, celebrating everything from weird match-day rituals to ridiculous armchair punditry. The Beautiful Game explores the highs and lows of football fandom – it may even attempt to explain the offside rule.
Four women deliver a knockout performance in this ballsy, high-energy show which is brimming with nostalgia and set to a backdrop of chant-along hits and a buzzing soundtrack.
Even if football isn’t your thing, this electric, feel-good show will persuade you of its charms.
Following a run at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe and a Live and Local tour, Next Door Dance’s The Beautiful Game is back on the road in spring 2022, with fixtures all around the UK.
Running time: 55 minutes. There is no interval. Age guidance: 7+
