Fit and Proper People heading to the Soho theatre
Date Posted: 05/08/11
Football fans and theatre lovers will both equally enjoy new play Fit and Proper People, which begins a run at the Soho theatre next month.
Created by Georgia Fitch, in association with the Royal Shakespeare Company, the play allows those on London theatre breaks to explore what goes on behind the scenes of Britain's favourite game.
The play tells the story of Casey Layton, a woman who is determined to get the money needed to get her club back in the Premier League, set in a theatre featuring real turf and floodlights.
Soho theatre artistic director Steve Marmion said: "I hope this play will be a catalyst for conversation and debate on what is happening behind the scenes of British football and who owns our cultural institutions."
The show opens for previews on October 7th and is scheduled to run at the Soho theatre until Saturday November 5th.
Soho theatre is to also play host to a modern retelling of Don Giovanni, set in the streets of Soho and sung in a new English translation, later this month as part of the OperaUpClose season.
