About The Spine

Kyle, Liam and Hakeem dream of football, fame and fortune - after spending most of their teenage years being the spine of the team, the premier league is now at their fingertips. But as they all reach for that golden contract, the cracks begin to appear as years of institutional racism and hyper-masculinity begin to take their toll. Will the boys be strong enough to stick together, or will they elbow their way to the top? With heavy beats, raw performances and silky football skills, The Spine is created by 20 Stories High, who specialise in theatre for young people, this is not only a play about football but one which explores what it really means to be a man in the 21st Century. Age Recommendation: 14+
