Saturday 7 October 2000. England v Germany, The King George v The Duke of York. Keegan resigns and Barry plays a blinder. Tensions erupt in a South London pub as England lose again.

First produced at the National Theatre in 2002, Sing Yer Hearts Out for the Lads became a controversial classic exploring racial tension against the backdrop of an England football match watched in a south London pub.

The play highlights how a surface acceptance of racial differences is easily destoryed leading to violent escalation and the polarisation of racial groups.
