Dear England

Wednesday, July 17th – 7pm
Alice Silverman Theatre

It’s time to change the game.

The country that gave the world football has since delivered a painful pattern of loss. Why can’t England’s men win at their own game?

With the worst track record for penalties in the world, Gareth Southgate knows he needs to open his mind and face up to the years of hurt to take team and country back to the promised land.

Joseph Fiennes (The Handmaid’s TaleThe Mother) plays Gareth Southgate in this new play by James Graham (Best of EnemiesSherwood). Following their acclaimed productions, Tammy Faye and Ink, he reunites with director Rupert Goold (Spring AwakeningJudy) for this gripping examination of both nation and game.
