In a paper world of light and shadow, violence and dance, five performers work together on what sets them apart.

Review this show


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-in-recovery, Lee Simpson wants answers. He hires some women to make a show about football, Nazis, and our future.

Age Recommendation: 15+

Critic reviews

A fierce and funny burst of energy in this new show from the inventive theatre company Improbable; a challenging story of an Austrian footballer, Nazis and who the heroes of our stories really are

· Everything Theatre

It's not that Vera Chok, Jess Mabel Jones, Keziah Joseph and Adrienne Quartly lack talent or have nothing to say, it's just it's exactly what we hear is precisely what I would expect to hear from four actors given such licence
