Offside: The Play


I co-wrote a play with Sabrina Mahfouz about the fucking fascinating history of women’s football, from the Scotland team’s defeat of England in the 1890’s  to the 1920’s Preston glory years to the FA’s ban of female play to current day.

The play is on tour next year in lots of places and I hope you might go take a look. It is not as rude as my other stuff so suitable for any of your younger people! x
