Roy William’s play, “Sing Yer Heart Out for the Lads,” returns to the Cottesloe Theatre in London this week. The play, which was first performed in 2002, is set in a Pub during England’s World Cup Qualifying match against Germany in 2000. It explores the issues of national identity and racism in football, as the pub crowd degenerate into a hotbed of xenophobia during England’s defeat.
The Cottesloe Theatre will be transformed into a South London boozer for the play, which is being shown again during the run up to the Euro 2004. The play runs from 23 April to 26 June 2004.
