Kicking homophobia out of The Beautiful Game – the greatest tackle in football
Kyle is comfortable with his life as a male escort until he is hired by a premiership footballer and finds himself falling in love. But can Kyle maintain a relationship with a closeted footballer in a country where no top-flight players are out? Can he go on pretending that the homophobia endemic in the game is nothing to do with him? Does he know what a relationship means, when, for him, sex has only ever been a transaction? Does he have the balls to ever tell his friends – and his family – the truth?
Performed as part of the Birmingham Fest by Gritty Theatre, who are fast gaining a reputation for performing gripping, visceral dramas, Away From Home is an edgy, witty, moving and subversively political piece that tackles football’s last taboo: homophobia.
Tickets: £10.50 (Concessions: £8.50)
