OFFSIDE - uk tour

8 MAY - 30 JUNE 2018

3 Centuries. 1 Goal. A glorious tale of struggle and sweat.

Heart thumping with oxygenised blood, 
adrenalin flooding every little bit of me
and every little bit of me
is every little bit of the field in front of me.

It is 1892. It is 1921. It is 2018. 
Four women from across the centuries live, breathe, and play football. Whilst each of them face very different obstacles, the possibility that the beautiful game will change their futures - and the world – is tantalisingly close. 

Offside is told through lyrical dialogue, poetry, and punchy prose, placing the audience on the touchline of the game of a lifetime.

★★★★★ “Brilliant and polished overlapping storytelling” – BroadwayBaby
★★★★★ “An impressive feat” – Morning Star
★★★★“A tremendous three-hander” – The Scotsman
★★★★ “An engaging, enthralling watch” – What’sOnStage
★★★★ “Defiantly and rawly poetic” –

Offside first toured the UK March – April 2017 before securing a transfer to the Pleasance for the Edinburgh Fringe.
