Andrew Lloyd Webber and Ben Elton’s musical is the story of ordinary people in an extraordinary situation. Winner of the 2000 Best Musical Award in the Critic Circle’s Theatre Awards, The Beautiful Game follows the fortunes of a group of teenagers from both sides of the religious divide during the Troubles in 1960s Belfast.

Under the watchful eye of team coach Father O’Donnell, John and Del both show enough promise to pursue careers as professional footballers. They’re just two regular teenagers who dream of nothing more than girls and football...but as they become swept up in the events that engulf their community, each has to decide whether or not to follow their hearts. This powerful and passionate musical is a joyous celebration of the freedom that love can bring.
