You know me, I ain't got a problem with nobody
Saturday 7 October. Gina, landlady of The King George pub, has a lot on her plate. The England vs Germany World Cup qualifying match is about to start, the pub football team is about to charge in and the TV’s on the blink.
Over the next few hours, national defeat looms and xenophobic tensions rise, fuelled by the inarticulate fury of the pub team captain, Lawrie, and the insidious propaganda of right-wing extremist Alan. And while policeman Lee struggles to keep the peace, disillusioned squaddie Mark and Gina’s bullied son Glen are fighting their own demons.
Premiered at the National Theatre in 2002, Roy Williams’s ferocious, funny and disturbing play takes aim at what it means to be black, white and English in twenty-first century Britain. Scoring high on foul language, threat and vulgar humour, Sing Yer Heart Out for the Lads is definitely not for the faint of heart.
Roy Williams’s award-winning plays have also been staged at the RSC and the Royal Court. Nicole Charles’s recent work includes Emilia at Shakespeare’s Globe and in the West End.
Sing Yer Heart Out for the Lads will be performed in The Spiegeltent, which will be transformed into a pub setting to create an immersive theatrical experience.
Important information – please read before booking.
- This production has extremely strong and explicit language including racial slurs, which some audience members may find offensive or upsetting. As such we feel an age guidance of 16+ is appropriate.
- Sing Yer Heart Out For The Lads will be performed in The Spiegeltent, a pop-up space designed to recreate a South London pub setting for this immersive production. Much of the action of the play will happen around you, characters may be shouting over your head, and there may be moments when your view is restricted or you have to turn in your seat.
- Audience members will sit on benches or stools, which may not have a backrest.
- Please note that tickets are unreserved; we will operate a queuing system outside the Spiegeltent in the half hour before the performance starts. This means you may be seated separately from other members of your party.
- Tickets are limited to a maximum of two per person.
- Some details of the set design are still to be finalised, including the total seating capacity for the performance. If possible, more tickets will be added at a later date .
- The Spiegeltent and bar area are licensed. Under 18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
