A bold, joyful exploration of the relationship between football and the queer community – featured in The Guardian’s Top 50 shows at Edinburgh Fringe 2023

Every goal, every assist, every clean sheet, it’s theirs.

Hot off the back of it’s award-winning, Offie-nominated Edinburgh Fringe run, November Theatre brings you PITCH. Devised from conversations with hundreds of LGBTQIA+ players, fans and professionals across the UK, PITCH helps us imagine a future in which queer presence in the beautiful game is more than just a debate over a rainbow armband. Expect a hat-trick of true stories, dirty tactics and dancing!

WINNER – The Pleasance Charlie Hartill Fund 2023
