Birmingham Repertory Theatre presents:
By Mohamed El Khatib
Enjoy the live capture of Birmingham Repertory Theatre’s recent new production, Stadium, in which the thrill of football is told through the drama of theatre. Experience the atmosphere of a live football match in this exhilarating journey through the stories of real Birmingham City, Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion fans, as they share their extraordinary memories of everything from relationships made to friendships lost.
With music, songs and rousing choreography, the show features exciting new footage on two huge screens, insight from local personalities and the inspirational characters behind the sport. Whether you've previously witnessed excitement build on the stage or the pitch, or are simply a thrill-seeking newcomer, experience the passion that people share in both theatre and football in this unique and memorable live capture, created through close collaboration with The Space.
★★★★★ Plays To See
“If one thing perhaps comes through predominantly from Stadium, it’s that there is less between the bitter rivalries of football, and society itself, than we thought. And that is a message which can only be shouted louder and louder from the theatres and the communities around the UK”
★★★★ Birmingham Mail
“A charming portrayal of the footballing divide between Blues and Villa”
★★★★ What’s On
“Letting Brum's communities take charge deserves our praise for offering something new”
Supported by The Space, Arts Council England and the BBC.
