The National Football Museum welcomes Hannah Kumari for a special performance of her acclaimed one-woman show, ENG-ER-LAND, in March.

It tells the story of Lizzie, a young girl who fell in love with the game when she was 13-years-old, after attending her first match in 1997—Coventry against Manchester City, a club that endured incredibly different fortunes back then compared to modern times.

From that day on, Lizzie was hooked and the beautiful game became an obsession—that is until something happens that makes her seriously question her place in the stands.

Given the fallout that surrounded England’s exit from Euro 2021 in the summer, and the support for the BLM movement that has been a mainstay in the Premier League and across Europe since last season, the play’s eye-opening themes resonate that bit more.

Written and performed by Hannah, and directed by Rikki Beadle-Blair, the high-energy performance has earned widespread rave reviews since making its stage debut. A play about figuring out who’s really on your team, the uplifting production encourages viewers to reflect and unite through a shared love of football.

ENG-ER-LAND comes to the National Football Museum on Thu 10 Mar, you can grab your tickets using the button below.
