“The city’s innovative Box of Tricks… First class theatre” – British Theatre Guide
“They don’t need to know. I just want to play football on a Sunday. It would change things. It shouldn’t, but it would.”
Pete loves football and he loves Gary. But when it comes to telling his teammates at Sons of Pitches, ahead of their Sunday League final, should he keep quiet for the sake of the game? A gritty and humorous play, The Other Team goes behind the locker room door and confronts the final taboo in the beautiful game.
This free, work-in-progress event is a rehearsed reading followed by a post-show feedback session and debate about the current issues of homophobia within football.
