It’s time to change the game.


The country that gave the world football has since delivered a painful pattern of loss. Why can’t England’s men win at their own game? The team has the worst track record for penalties in the world, and manager Gareth Southgate knows he needs to open his mind and face up to the years of hurt to take team and country back to the promised land.


Joseph Fiennes’ portrayal of Gareth Southgate is ‘pitch-perfect’ (Time Out) in this ‘thrilling’ (Sunday Times) new play by James Graham, with set design by Es Devlin. Graham reunites with director Rupert Goold, following their acclaimed productions of Tammy Faye and Ink, in this gripping ‘new stage epic’ (Telegraph) about both nation and game.


Joseph Fiennes will not be performing on the following performances: Monday 16th October, Tuesday 17th October, Wednesday 20th December, Thursday 21st December, Friday 22nd December (both shows).

    Uplifting portrayal of the transformation of the England team by Garth Southgate. The sets by Es Devlin made a big difference in bringing it all to life. Ver timely also as we head to the Euros in Germany this year.
