Futures Theatre Company presents OFFSIDE BY Sabrina Mahfouz and Hollie McNish

Tue 29 May 2018| 7:30 pm- 9:30 pm

- £6 – £10

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” – AllEdinburghTheatre.com

 

Offside  was born out of extensive research in to the history and current state of women’s football, working with top women’s teams, Manchester City Women’s FC and Millwall Lionesses, where many players, sports scientists and others, integral to the development of the game, were interviewed to gain an in-depth insight into their world. To understand the historical context, Futures’ partnered with the National Football Museum (Manchester) and the Imperial War Musuem (London).

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