Get ready for the World Cup with new comedy England Away

The Future is Unwritten come to The Met on Wednesday 14 May at 8pm with brand new comedy about passion, patriotism, football and ‘Englishness’, England Away.

.

England Away is a sometimes glorious, occasionally messy, but always funny mash up of comedy and drama set across three timelines.

 

It’s 2001, and four very different England fans meet in Germany the night before an astonishing 5-1 victory for England. Jump back to 1944, and two men argue and dream about the land they have been fighting for as they make their way home from the war, contemplating their hopes and fears for a new England. Present day, and stand-up comedian Eddy Brimson punctuates the drama with provocative and hard hitting material about football culture, what it means to be English and what is happening in the world right now.

 

Created by the team behind Meeting Joe Strummer (UK tour), Fever Pitch (Two UK tours and West End) and Brighton ‘Til I Die (Theatre Royal Brighton), TFIU’s winning combination of drama and stand up comedy throws theatrical convention out of the window to offer new perspectives on national identity in the run-up to the world cup.

 

England Away is suitable for ages 14+. Tickets for the performance at The Met are £12, or £10 for concessions. For more information or to book phone 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz
