Surprised there's been nothing on the official website


As part of a National UK Tour, Offside could be heading your way with dates booked at QPR, Leyton Orient, Brighton Hove & Albion and Lewes this summer.

Inspired by real, untold stories from the world of women’s football, Offside provides an untold commentary on the breakthroughs and limitations in women’s football, exploring wider themes of inequality, self-belief and empowerment.

Written by leading poets Sabrina Mahfouz and Hollie McNish, Offside, and with a new cast of Jessica Dennis, Marieme Diouf and Fizz Waller, the play goes out on its second UK tour after a highly successful run at the Pleasance for the 2017 Edinburgh Festival.

The play explores the story of Emma Clarke in Liverpool 1892 - the first black professional female footballer; Lily Parr of Dick Kerr Ladies and the introduction of the FA ban in 1921, preventing women from using FA pitches; and a fictional representation of the contemporary game, explored through two characters, Mickey and Keeley.

QPR FC and QPR Trust said: "We are delighted that Offside will be performed at Loftus Road in June. QPR have a strong association with female football and the Club's Community Trust work tirelessly to provide opportunities at all levels of the game engaging over 700 girls and women each week across their programmes.

"The production is another way to show how the club embrace diversity and strive for equality through football."

Emma Clarke, the lady in question, is a fascinating subject.
