National Theatre Live: Dear England

Director: Rupert Goold

Cast: Joseph Fiennes, Will Close, Adam Hugill, Darragh Hand, Ebenezer Gyau, Gina McKee


Joseph Fiennes (The Handmaid’s Tale) plays Gareth Southgate in James Graham’s
(Sherwood) gripping examination of nation and game.

The country that gave the world football has since delivered a painful pattern of loss. Why
can’t England’s men win at their own game?

With the worst track record for penalties in the world, Gareth Southgate knows he needs to
open his mind and face up to the years of hurt, to take team and country back to the
promised land.

Filmed live on stage at the National Theatre, Rupert Goold (Judy) directs this spectacular
new play.

2 Hours 50 Mins including one interval
