“Walking up to Highfield Road for the first time was mind blowing. Seeing all the other people with their shirts and scarfs, feeling like you’re part of that, feeling that excitement in the air.”
1997. Last year England made it to the semi-finals of Euro 96, Gina G came eighth in Eurovision and 13 year-old Lizzie fell in love with the beautiful game. Lizzie’s Mum’s from India, her Dad says he’s Scottish, but she’s English, right? Saturdays are for football and Coventry City, until something happens to make Lizzie question her place in the stands. ENG-ER-LAND is an energetic play about fighting to belong and finding out who’s really on your team.
