Edinburgh Fringe play Why I Stuck A Flare Up My Arse for England will open at Southwark Playhouse Borough for a limited run this April.
Direct from a critically acclaimed, sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2023, Why I Stuck A Flare Up My Arse for England is a blisteringly funny new play that examines what it means to be a die-hard football fan. The piece is written and performed by Alex Hill with direction by Sean Turner.
Why I Stuck A Flare Up My Arse for England follows two mates Billy and his best pal Adam – die hard football fans. It’s the Euro 2020 final at Wembley and Billy’s gone viral for sticking a flare up his arse! But when they encounter a new group of mates, they start to take their support one step further.
Praise for the Edinburgh run included ★★★★★ ‘Boozy, ballsy, brilliantly executed’ – Entertainment Now and ★★★★★ ‘A gem of a play’ – Broadway Baby.
Why I Stuck a Flare Up My Arse For England opens at Southwark Playhouse Borough in The Large auditorium on 22 April and runs until 4 May 2024.
