What do we do when fascism comes to town?

In 1938, Austrian football star Matthias Sindelar humiliated the Nazi regime by refusing to throw a match. A few months later he was dead. Accident, suicide or execution? Inspirational little guy or yet another man and his ego? Who cares? 

Middle aged, white British, Football addict-in-recovery, Lee Simpson wants answers. He hires some women to make a show about football, Nazis, and our future.

In a paper world of light and shadow, violence and dance, four performers work together on what sets them apart.

Supported by Cockayne – Grants for the Arts and the London Community Foundation 

A Norfolk & Norwich Festival and La Strada, Graz co-commission. Co-produced with Norwich & Norfolk Festival.


Tobacco Factory Theatres, Bristol – 24 – 27 Jan 2019
