Delightful, Joyful, Great acting, Great characterisation, Charming

See it if you love a character-driven drama; to see charming audience interactions or to warm your heart with a joy-filled play about male friendship

Don't see it if you have other plans - no reason not to see this delightful, engaging play. It is character driven - less football focused than you'd think. Read more

Entertaining, Clever, Moving, Funny

See it if You'd enjoy a moving, coming of age story, set in London. It's a brilliantly funny play.

Don't see it if You want a 2-act show (there is no interval) - You want to watch a show with a big cast (only 3 cast members).

Refreshing, Edgy, Entertaining

See it if Fresh new theatre, fun evening, insight into the world of young football

Don't see it if the accents and language are very hard to understand. Accoustics not great at times

Football, Aspirations, Family/friendship, Community, Hope/fear

See it if you enjoy inner city issues - 3 friends on a quest to become pro footballers & grappling with the crucial question of belonging.

Don't see it if Inner city/Urban issues and/or football isn’t your choice of theatre.

Thought-provoking, Absorbing, Funny, Great staging, Great acting

See it if You want a show that explores important topics that haven’t been seen in theatre before. You don’t have to enjoy football for this show.

Don't see it if You don’t enjoy modern theatre.
