A press photograph for the theatre show ENGERLAND shows performer Hannah Kumari smiling, wearing a blue England football kit, and holding an England scarf above her head. In the background are other images of Hannah Kumari celebrating.

“Walking up to Highfield Road for the first time was mind blowing. Seeing all the other people with their shirts and scarfs, feeling like you’re part of that, feeling that excitement in the air.”

1997. Last year England made it to the semi-finals of Euro 96, Gina G came third in Eurovision and 13 year-old Lizzie went to her first in-person football game: Coventry vs. Manchester City. Not the Man City of today, oil and superstars, but the old Man City – a bit rubbish, but with good fans. Lizzie fell in love with the beautiful game that day, and she’s been obsessed ever since. But then something happens to make her question her place in the stands.

ENG-ER-LAND is an energetic play about who’s really on your team.
