World Premiere

Created by Vera Chok, Sophia Clist, Colin Grenfell, Steve Harper, Jess Mabel Jones, Anna-Maria Nabiyre, Adrienne Quartly, Lee Simpson and Steve Tiplady

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-inrecovery, 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.

Founded 21 years ago, Improbable are firmly established as one of the UK’s most innovative and acclaimed theatre companies.
