OFFSIDE

by Futures Theatre

 

Running time: 75 minutes (no interval)

 

"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 1921. It is 2018.

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 futures - and the world  is tantalisingly

close.

 

Offside is told through lyrical dialogue, poetry, and punchy prose,

placing the audience on the touchline of the game of a lifetime.
