Dear England is a play about England football manager Gareth Southgate, the pressures of elite sport, and the role of the national men's football team in the national psyche.
It’s time to change the game.
The country that gave the world football has since delivered a painful pattern of loss. Why can’t England’s men win at their own game?
With the worst track record for penalties in the world, Gareth Southgate knows he needs to open his mind and face up to the years of hurt to take team and country back to the promised land.
Written by James Graham, it opened in 2023 at the National Theatre in London starring Joseph Fiennes as Gareth Southgate and directed by Rupert Goold. The title comes from the open letter which Southgate wrote to England fans in 2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The show runs until 11 August 2023, and you can book tickets here: National Theatre
