Funny, yet also at times very poignant, this is a fascinating examination of the emotional and psychological upheaval that the footballers who make up the England team have experienced over the years. Initially, you see characters portrayed almost as though they'd been constructed for an update of Spitting Image, but minutes later, deeper layers are revealed and you realise the struggle Gareth Southgate has been up against to turn round the team and make it something that not only the country could believe in but also the players themselves. Es Devlin's set is amazing and deceptively simple and the choreography of movement by the cast gives this pace and dynamism. Yes, footy fans will recognise more details than those who don't like the game, but it goes deeper than recalling just what the England team have been up to in the last seven years. The metaphor running throughout is a story in three acts, but the England team's story will (I hope) run and run. Congrats to all the cast, the production team and the crew involved.

I went to see “Dear England” last night. It was really enjoyable. I thought the acting was good, especially by the one playing Gareth Southgate. It depicted the characters well and the interaction in the changing room. The idea was good. I thought the execution could have been a bit better. I was pleased with my seats which were central and near the front. The queue for the bar at the interval was not too long so no complaints!
