“Live theatre is popping up in unexpected places this Autumn and that includes this show performed inside a football ground with social distancing in place. It’s appropriate because Michelle Payne’s play tells the story of five young female school leavers who decide to form a 5-a-side squad in Dagenham. I like the fact that the second half of the show takes the form of a five a side football match played out in the form of a dance and rather makes me hope this might be a female cross between Up ‘n’ Under and Dance Nation.”
Everyone has football fever, but not in the usual way. England’s Lionesses are tearing up the pitch and making a real name for the female game. Lexi, who never had the opportunity to be taken seriously, inspires a group of school leavers to redefine the game in her home town of Dagenham.
Squad Goals is a brand new immersive experience from Caspa Productions. The show will have its world premiere at Dagenham & Redbridge Football Ground this September and run for 4 weeks as a socially distanced, outdoor, immersive experience.
Jump into the action by joining one of two rival football teams and make your way from trials to the match with your teammates.
This is an open air performance. In the event of bad weather, the show will continue unless it is deemed unsafe by the venue or the producer. All audience seating is under shelter. Unless the event is cancelled by the producer, there will be no refunds owing to inclement weather.
All dates listed are subject to football fixtures and may be liable to change. Should a performance be cancelled, your tickets can be reallocated to any other available performance of your choosing.
