Event Information

After two critically acclaimed tours in 2017 & 2018, Sabrina Mahfouz & Hollie McNish's electric OFFSIDE is back for a third and final tour of theatres and football clubs, to celebrate the Women's European Football Championship.

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 1992. It is 2022.

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 lives – and the world – is tantalisingly close.

With punchy storytelling, lyrical poetry and dynamic physicality, Offside places the audiences right on the touchline of the game of a lifetime.
