Dear England

Brand new play DEAR ENGLAND is coming to the National Theatre’s Olivier Theatre for a limited run this summer!

It’s time to change the game.

Joseph Fiennes (The Handmaid’s Tale, The Mother) plays Gareth Southgate in this new play by James Graham (Best of Enemies, Sherwood).

What is Dear England about?

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.
