ENG-ER-LAND. Written & acted by Hannah Kumari

★★★★ The Stage Uplifting, energetic theatre, ENG-ER-LAND blends storytelling, dance and music with 90s nostalgia as it tackles themes of racism, identity politics, lad culture & working-class masculinity. When it comes to it, who is really on your team?

It is 1997. Last year England made it to the semi-finals of Euro 96, Gina G came third in Eurovision and 13 year-old Lizzie went to her first in-person football game: Coventry vs. Manchester City. Not the Man City of today, oil and superstars, but the old Man City – a bit rubbish, but with good fans. Lizzie fell in love with the beautiful game that day, and she’s been obsessed ever since.

But then something happens to make her question her place in the stands. Hannah’s very personal story follows her own experience of racism as a football fan and her struggles to be accepted into a historically white, male, working class world.
