Football v Theatre
There are only winners
"Football's not a matter of life and death," said Bill Shankly. "It's much more serious than that." Thinking that there might be something in this, The Rep's staging a completely new production, focusing on relationships between real Birmingham City, Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion fans.Stadium presents the extraordinary experiences of supporters, through music, rousing choreography, songs and big screen footage, looking at the prospect of relegation, promotion — and perhaps more importantly — relationships made and friendships lost. Showing from June 9 to 17, tickets to this particular local derby are from an unusually competitive £10. Father's Day option, maybe?
